    How to use "Disproportionately" in context?

    "disproportionately" is an oft-used word in everyday conversation. It can describe how something is done in a way that is not usual or proportional. For example, when a person gets a lot of awards but does not perform as well as others in the group, that could be described as being "disproportionately" successful. Disproportionately can also be used when discussing statistics.
