Open dictionary

Macmillan’s “Open Dictionary” crowd-sources our evolving language:

        • What words have you come across that aren’t in any dictionaries?
        • What words are you using that may be exclusive to your part of the world, or your part of the web?
        • What words have you always used in English that you can’t find in most dictionaries and that you think should be there?

Let us know by adding your word to our Open Dictionary here.

Recent entries include “sweary,” meaning “full of swearing.” I feel we can improve this word. I propose: swearful.

(Or how about the oh-so-trendy “cursetastic”? See: Ben Zimmer, “meme-tastic.)
