In Reply to: Torquedness/Torqueness? posted by Diana Trent on January 11, 2005

: A tightly-wound individual has been dubbed "His Torqueness". I think that should be "His Torquedness". We googled 703 hits for torqueness vs. only 9 hits for torquedness, but I stubbornly refuse to conceed defeat as yet. Would anyone care to adjudicate the debate?

You must be right because Torqueness is a headland on the Devon coast (or should be).
