In THE WHITE ACABUS (1997) I introduced "aksed" which immediately 
took flight like a... dead auk. I still think it nicely combines the 
common solecism for "asked" and the implied root term "access".

In my forthcoming story from Tor.com, a character speaks of 
"consulting the Know." Presumably in that future, she'd have 
"knowed." Or "node."
