|English term or phrase: misconfiguration|
|Can anyone indicate a source that proves that this is an actual word?|
"misconfiguration" (as part of an application error message)
I think it is, but I cannot find it in any valid source. I would prefer something solid.
Thank you :-)
|Someone wrote to the Webmaster?|
You mean that someone with access to the Internet, therefore with access to Google, complains about a word with 423,000 hits because he can't find it in his dictionary?
It does not appear in glossaries because it's a word with such an obvious meaning that no one thought it would need explaining.
But if this person wants to see it in black and white, try a9.com. It lets you look inside published books. There are 424 books with the word 'misconfiguration' in them. Some of them are in the well-known 'For Dummies' series. Recommend one.

juvera is so right. The 2003 edition of the Oxford Dictionary of English does have an entry. At http://www.akrovates.com/images/misconfigure.jpg you will find a screen-capture image of that entry from my electronic edition of the dictionary. All the credit to juvera.

|Thank you everyone! My copy of Oxford did not have the word. I copied the entry given at the link you provided Nick, thank you :-)|
After I replied to the user with this reference, he replied saying that he would no longer blindly trust MS Word's dictionary ;-) I think he's in on our secret...!
