usefulestGrammatically incorrect superlative of useful. Standard English (AE and BE): most useful.
prehistoricReferring to a time period before the earliest beginnings of written history. While written accounts of past events in a modern sense fulfilling modern criteria (e.g. accuracy, no political or religious agenda, no bias, reliable eye witness testimony, marking of rumor, hearsay and conjecture as such et c.) are much younger, "historic" usually includes all written accounts that can reveal anything about early human civilizations. Scholars therefore will set a different time for the end of prehistory depending on what civilization they are dealing with. Since written accounts are out of the picture by definition, prehistory has to be studied and examined by other means. Academic disciplines capitalizing on such methods are e.g. archaeology and paleontology.
exhumatedto exhumate: The act of recovering a body that already had been buried. This would happen for example when after the burial law enforcement receives clues that a deceased person might be the victim of a crime. The goal is to find any signs of criminal activity on the body or to rule them out, by performing an autopsy.
trisomeSexual activity with three participants, or porn movies depicting the same.

When English is not your native language and you've spoken it for decades, you'll find you can still learn something from the quiz. Thumbs up!

The word that actually brought me here was one in non-standard German (Vienna dialect), lyrics from a song. Since applications is kinda rare, I wonder if this is useful to you. It seems to me also, many of the words in question are typos. "Untrumped" seems fascinating to me; context would be nice. Otherwise I 'd guess, either something is debunked ("we untrumped the myth of voter fraud"), or saying the naked truth straight out ("These are the untrumped facts").
