What part of speech is the word "rife"?
As in, "This paper is rife with errors." It seems to be bound into the phrase "rife with _____", and I sort of assume it's an adjective, but I'm having a bit of trouble with that given that I can't unbind it from the colloquialism.
Am I simply having a brain fart, or is something odd going on here?
ETA: Yep, definitely a brain fart. As in, use the dictionary, Lake, they have them online these days...
