This isn’t as much as an old word as it is a forgotten form of punctuation. An interrobang (‽) was the original form for the modern !?!? and the fact we don’t use the interrobang instead is just us as a society being lazy.

So, here are some fun examples of the sadly forgotten interrobang.

What do you think you’re doing‽

Why the hell did you not use an interrobang‽

Say what‽

No way, really‽

I can go on, but I think you get the point. Whenever you want to use this !? please for the sake of society try using ‽ … all right, rant complete for now.

Here are some links on how to add interrobangs into your word, if you don’t have them set up already. I tested them, so I know they work. 🙂
