First post folks. Mewonders if anyone has ever come by the word "asidely" and its use to mean: "indirectly"? Happened upon it at e t y m o l i n e. Other than the aforesaid, there weirdishly seems to be nothing else about the word "asidely" on the net. I am keen on digging up examples, and thoughts on its usage and background. Methinks it works somewhat for (indirectly)... "as ever, the unforthrightmost of them unsurprisingly answered ever so asidely" ?
