Stop Using The Word 'Insultive,' See The Right Word To Use

There are frequently used words that sounds correct but are wrong. These words are misused interchangeably in sentences and statements in our country Nigeria.

Many call it a blunder, while many knowledgeable ones, ridicules anyone who uses these words.

One of the words is the word "insultive," which sounds correct in the ears of an average educated Nigerian.

Nevertheless, there is no word like "insultive," as many do say "you are insultive."

The correct usage is "Insulting."

The word "insulting" is right while the word "insultive" is wrong and has no place in English.
