As a non-native English speaker, I've come to face a problem with the word "bolded"
I know "bold" is an adjective so we can use that word like this: the bold words.
How about "bolded"? Isn't "bolded" a word? I can't find "bolded" in any English dictionaries but in many web-pages written in English.
Is "the bolded words" a wrong phrase?
Anonymous:No, it's fine. Regardless of whether it's found in dictionaries, it has been in usage for centuries
Anonymous:I'm afraid you've made a rather quick -- and fallacious -- judgement here.
Close reading of the Wikipedia article you reference reveals no support for "centuries of use" of the word "bolded."
