    My brain translated your exthergated into exaggerated when I first scanned the title.
    1. excessively or inappropriately heightened, inflated, or overstated
    2. enlarged or increased beyond the normal : greater than normal

  • how reliable is the spelling

    From attached image i can only spell it exthagated or _ _ t_ _ _gated.

    The only reasonably certain letter in that word is the t, followed by an h. However if it is someone who habitually puts an h after a t on the off-chance it may be needed (he thought me/ he taught me) then it could be very difficult.

    If the previous word is 'was' then the questionable word could be anything!

    edit - the preceding word is 'feels'? Surely not?

    But I think it's improper usage if the OP is correct in terms of its meaning here.

    It seems like someone was going for ostracized but ended up at exthragated.

  • id have said untrusted, given the explanation of an habitual h after a t
