Hi,

i came across a word 'inpidual' in a document. couldn't find it's meaning yet. a Inpidual for the word resulted in 3000+ results. but no online dictionaries identify the word! I tired Wordsmith's email service also.
from the context of usage, it seems the meaning is "individual"

Is such a word exists, or is it a mis-spelt for "individual"?

wowser! it sure looks a like a misspell of individual from all of the inpidual contexts Google comes up with; but why that spelling happens so often I've no clue (pi for divi??)

It might somehow derive from P Divi:

However when you acquire this site you may also get a singing rapper which you cannot then get rid of, short of rebooting

The only little context I found for the word:
Resultaten voor: inpidual
Jan De Neve

"If we have clear and proven answers anytime an organization or inpidual asks "How can I help?," then we can get action and we can make sure that none of the ..."

Coming from this Google page, but in this Jan De Neve article I can't find once more.

Looks indeed like it's just a fashionable funny way to replace 'individual'.
