Okay guys, my english teacher is a b!tch cause she can't admit that sometimes i'm right and she's wrong and now she's picking on me. Isn't 'Untraditional' and antonym for the word 'Traditional'? I argued with that bit*h for about 15 minutes, until i was like ''Oh god, i can't be assed to argue with you.''. Anyways...she put me a C for that...and that's why i really wanna find out...is it an existing word or not?


Cheers in advance

I had a similar argument involving the word ropeless.

Apparently, English has an adjective for when you're out of rope.

Hurrah.

EDIT: Don't people traditionally use "non-traditional" as traditional's antonym?

Print that page out from the dictionary and then wipe her ass with it.

Then tell her she's wrong.

I'd normally say "non-traditional", but untraditional is a word, yes.

It's one of those shitty words that really is wrong, but nobody has a good reason why and everyone uses it anyway so it gets stuck in the dictionary.

It shouldn't really be right, 'nontraditional' is the proper word.

It sounds like an American word to me.

I would use 'non-traditional' in that situation.

I would say nontraditional;as far as I know "untraditional" isn't a word...

EDIT: Wether it's technicaly wrong or not, I think Meths has a fairly accurate appraisal of the situation going on: Just use nontraditional, it sounds less stupid.
