Okay, I feel odd writing this but I looked around and never found the answer so I'm hoping for some feedback.
I was doing a proof and a doctor answered low-averagish intellect before the accident. Wouldn't that be low-average-ish before the accident; or low average-ish before the accident? I was wondering why it was written as such, I know "ish" is a common term in pop culture lingo but I was a bit thrown off that a doctor used it in that manner. I marked it for the reporter to review and noted low, average-ish before the accident. Any feedback? Is there any reason the reporter would have written it as solid that I'm not aware of?
