AFFIRM, v.t, To declare with suspicious gravity when one is not compelled to wholly discredit himself with an oath.
2009 Update: To wisen the world by verifying what another would otherwise falsify. To prepare for citation.
Doug, for once you are completely right on here, I affirm.
Affirm, to make legal.
AFFIRM, v. t.:
1. What the health club promises as it prepares you for the financial slaughter.
2. To appear in Jose Canseco's book.
affirm or to swear to ; old school terms,once linked with ones' Honor...in last eight years it was sadly used to defraud America's working class of its investments , undermining confidence in the make believe world of global finance ...
Thanks, Jim. I'll try not to make a habit out of it.
Ariel, it's almost that easy.
Amoeba, I have been a member of a health club for 6 years and it hasn't helped a bit. I might try exercise next.
Bear, it's a cycle of fraud in which all may play a part. Happy Bolladagur.
Affirm: to agree. To say yes, Taylor says "Yeesh", and Courtney says "Cha." It's their own silly language.
A friendly bark at anything the Master utters.
to affirm,v. to blind-draw
to affirm, v.t: to accuse by half
Affirm: after refusing to swear or promise, she thought she might affirm but couldn't remember what she was verifying
Love your definition Doug
Affirm is better than Aflacid.
JD, tell me more of this language. What's the word for "Mom?"
Icy, Willie and Walela think barking is the master's voice.
To accuse by half? Nice, Minka.
Pia, I wondered if someone would bring up the oath of office.
Nessa, that took me minute. Clever. Ooky.
Actonbell, as in "Affirm of Dewey, Cheatham and Howe?"
