Mar. 25th, 2010 09:07 pm Logied?

I need some help. I came across the word 'logied' at work, but I'm convinced this isn't a real word - yet at the same time I can't help but think it might be a past tense of logy. I've been checking my dictionaries here at home with no luck.

Logied. Is this a real word?

According to the OED, logy is an adjective meaning "dull and heavy in motion or thought," or can be used as a noun to describe a heavy fish. Logily is the adverb.

Logie also has two definitions: "The open space before a kiln fire; = KILLOGIE" and "An ornament made of zinc, intended to give the effect of jewellery."

There is no entry for logied, and nowhere is it indicated that it's a verb. That said, I'm sure I've seen it written before. So. If what you read lines up with any of the above (I'm betting on "logy"), then I'd say yes, it is a word.

I was about to post the same, so ...yah.

I've never seen it, but it's a word.

it's not in the scrabble dictionary, at the least, which means it's in none of chambers, collins or merriam websters

What's the context? If you post the sentence in which it occurs, someone might be able to figure out what it's supposed to mean.

The problem is, those six letters may combine in that order to make a real word in certain contexts, but it doesn't mean that the person who used it made any sense when they did.

Could it be a typo of 'loogied'? (Without context, the world may never know...)
