allegedly means: A word added to the end, middle or beginning of a sentence that emphasizes the possibility that your statement may be false. A word that is used to convey your opinion about something or someone without being harsh, biased, or biggoted. Verbally citing a source you believe is not reliable, but spreading gossip. Use the term allegedly. It’s safer and looks less suspicious. (in Slang Dictionary, added by Boston Mccullough)
