Funny. That is pretty close to the definition of "deviant" in The
American Century Dictionary: " (adj) deviating from what is normal. The
-ed ending usually indicates a verb form, such as remembered (past tense
verb, not adjective), or called, or ended, or prepared. But the
dictionary doesn't have "deviated" at all. These verb forms can become a
kind of verbal adjective, as in "remembered garden" or "cleft palette."
But then you are back to the same meaning as "deviant," the one I found
in the dictionary.

No. I meant deviated. It means
characterized by deviation or departure from an accepted norm or
standard, as of behavior.

I found this very funny. Do I have a deviated sense of humor?
