An adjective used to describe a situation that is either awfully awkward or awkwardly awful. This must be a situation in which both words are necessary, but also a situation wherein one cannot be bothered to use them both. Thus, "awkful" was born.
In a word, awkful.
A portmanteau of awkward and awful; something that is both awkward and awful.
It's going to be awkful to discuss the sex-ridden book in Mr. Smith's English class, he is a 82 year old man you know.
