lol, I couldn't think of any curse words that began with "ex" so I missed that one. I didn't know it meant another name for a curse word.

'Infer from current trends' is definately 'extrapolate'...but 'expect' could also be an example of an extra solution. I suppose it isn't exact, but extrapolate isn't explicitly the only exclusive answer. There may be others, except i don't want to exhaust all examples.

I thought that you extrapolated a phrase or paragraph(s) from a larger body of writing; I never heard of it used as "infer from current trends".

I think "execration" should be accepted for "curse word"—fits rather literally.

Extramarital just means outside of marriage. It doesn't mean adulterous until you add the word "affair".

This is probably annoyingly picky, but an extrovert isn't technically outgoing though the association is common enough that no change should be made. But, I'd recommend something more like, "A person who is energized by being around people."

I know I tried extramarital several times. Can't believe I must have typoed it. But I humbly request "ex-wife" for adulterous.
