ATLANTA, GA- After a long, six month research period it was discovered that conversate is not a word.

This study comes from 40 year old, Geoffrey Bentine, who while in a conversation with a friend said, "Can we conversate later?" In turn his friend Michelle Brown, 38 told him that conversate was not a word.

After an hour of arguing and saying that it was a word and he knew this because he looked it up on the Internet, Mr. Bentine decided to prove his friend wrong and set out to prove that this was in fact the correct term to use.

After meeting with several high school English teachers and College professors explaining that a definition of conversate was found on the Internet.

All told him that he was wrong and that the correct term to use was converse. Geoffrey still wasn't convinced, so he went to Webster's and to his dismay, conversate was not in the dictionary.

For six months, he used the Internet and other real dictionaries to try to prove his point. However, his journey ended when the Master of all English Language explained to him that no matter what is said online, conversate is not a word and is not suitable to use in proper grammar. Six months of research told him what his friend told him in the beginning, conversate is not a word. However, one wonders why he is just finding this out at 40 years old.

Mr. Bentine is now putting together a proposal to make conversate a word along with other words such as irregardless, agreeance, and updation. All this was done just to avoid having to say, "I was wrong."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
