Plumbing the Depths of ‘Inchoate’

PENCIL PAPERThe Daily Post Prompt today is the word inchoate. It’s a word I never use. In fact, I consider it a rather worthless word. But when I saw it, I was consumed with a sudden desire to see just how many useful words I could make from it. So here goes. If you readers find some I’ve missed, feel free to post them in the ‘Comments’ window below.

INCHOATE:

in, inch, it, hi, hie, ate, at, an, ha, hot, hat, hate, hen, oh, ah, heat, hint, hon, con, coat, cot, cat, can, chin, ten, tan, ton, tone, teach, the, than, then, thin, nich, oat,  hone, cone, cane, note, not, net, neat, chant, can’t, echo, ice, nice, taco, nacho, cinco.
(That makes 50 regular words.)

And then there are proper names:

Enoch, Nate, Nat, Theo, Thane, Cane, Chet

    1. It means “in the beginning stages, undeveloped, Immature, emerging, etc. ” That’s why I consider it a worthless word. There are at least ten other words that can be used to say the same thing, and most people would know what they mean. Almost no average person knows the meaning of “inchoate,” so, personally, I think it’s stupid to use it.

Hey, don't you dare go away without leaving me a note!
