We’re Listening. What Words Do You Think We Should Add to Dictionary.com?

string telephone, listening

Earlier this week, we announced that we’d added hundreds of new words to the dictionary, including Google Glass, Obamacare, and many others.

But we’ve been wondering: what additional terms do you think we should add to Dictionary.com? Is there a slang expression you hear all the time (like binge-watch or brogrammer)? Have you seen an old word used in a new way (like pinch or the new use of because)? We’d love to hear about any and all encounters you’ve had with linguistic creativity. Let us know in the comments!

    Dictionary.com requires the word “Jarate” which means Urine in a Jar, it’s a well used term around the internet, but Dictionary.com does not have it. It was first made in 2009 and came from Bellevue, Washington, United States.

    Getted- to be gotten or to get

    • You -  April 14, 2015 - 7:29 am

      You do realize that’s an ungrammatical word, right? I think there’s specifically a rule in grammar (don’t know for sure though) that states that getted and gotted are VERY incorrect, in addition to other words like those.

    “Sneezier” is a word I believe belongs in the dictionary. Repeated or consecutively(back to back) sneezing it is an action you see taking place more often due to more people suffering allergies. It’s a fun word I have been using it for years and always get a smile or chuckle. Sneezeur, sneezure, sneezier not sure on proper spelling rules I am teaching myself due to my lack of education. I will tell you one thing Dictionary.com is so totally awesome for me I was ecstatic when I was turned on to it… In a nutshell “sneezier” belongs… Thank You JJM

    Your picture of the 2 children trying to use cans as a telephone illustrates your stupidity. One child has to hold the can in front of her mouth and the string must be taut so that the vibration can travel over it.

      You ridiculous pedant. Is your life so dull, empty and pointless that you worry about the technical accuracy of a picture?

    you should add the words from other languages -___-

  7. wolf tamer and coal miner -  February 11, 2014 - 2:00 am

    I just discovered that “funner” and “funnest” are actually in Dictionary.com as informal comparative and superlative of the adjective “fun.” Maybe I should check to see whether a word is in the dictionary already before I suggest it…

  8. Cody -  February 10, 2014 - 1:14 pm

    Okay I just had to look through again (stupidly seeing as how most of the entries hurt my eyes and brain, they are that awful – dictionary.com should be ashamed of themselves for causing such a playground) and hard as it is to imagine that there is one that beat what I already remarked on, there is.

    To the person who wrote:

    (I’ll ignore that you have a broken caps lock key just as this won’t be nice anyway).
    A word can have more than one use. Surely you know this? Please tell me you know this? Thought is related to think and to make use of ‘your’ word (that use is ancient and even though not an official use it is well known) well, who would have ‘thunk’ (quotes because it is a word with more than one meaning but nothing to do with the topic) that thought is past tense of think? The funny thing is this very fact makes your word redundant: “The man thought he was going crazy.” would be using past tense. Shortly: there is absolutely no need for past tense of thought as it already is!

  9. Cody -  February 6, 2014 - 8:47 am

    Oh dear me….

    Mary, who wrote:
    “Funly – (Fun+ly) – in a fun manner, adverb of fun”

    The word is funnily. Surely you’ve heard someone say “funnily enough” at least once? That’s one common usage of the word.

    And to the person who suggested “funnier” being in the dictionary. You’re absolutely right! Guess what though? It already _is_ in the dictionary and its a rather old word (older than you and your grandparents age combined).

    I didn’t read all the entries but I hope the cynic in me is wrong and there are no other ignorant entries (as above) but I doubt it… I’m not sure whether to laugh from the hilarity or just accept it as all too common in this day and age. Maybe both.

    • You -  April 14, 2015 - 6:51 am

      I think it would be best if you just accepted the fact that most people are idiots incapable of remembering anything other than what the current fads are and what they should wear, and occasionally quietly laugh to yourself at the pure stupidity and ignorance on display. That’s what I do, anyways.

    Sonder – the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as one’s own

    Found in the Urban Dictionary and The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows. Thought to be an actual word by many and therefore has been adopted into modern vocabulary as such. Most definitely a real experience but with no official word to accompany it.

  13. Wynter -  February 4, 2014 - 6:16 pm

    I believe “frindle” should be added. Make it a real word, not just something from a book that everyone read when they were little.

  14. Gabrielle Hunter-Davis -  February 4, 2014 - 6:12 pm

    fugal- to flirt obsessively with some one

    1) (verb) To mark the coming of a new season, year, month, day, etc. by decorating, redecorating, or changing something to either fit the new day, month, year, season, etc. or one needs a change and has decided to change on this particular day.

    Part of Speech: Verb

    Januaryized, adjective
    Januaryizing, verb
    Januaryizes, adjective
    Origin: American word made up by me

    • You -  April 14, 2015 - 7:00 am

      I really feel like that term would only be appropriate for the coming of a new year, not for the coming of every new day, season, month, etc. Otherwise, it’s kind of awkward to say.
      ‘What you doing?’
      ‘Oh, I’m Januaryizing. What about you?’

  17. Krizia -  February 4, 2014 - 6:02 pm

    Lotionize or Lotionizing – VERB – when an individual applies lotion to a specific part of their body or all throughout their body.

    (ie). – Hey, what are you doing?
    – Nothing much, just lotionizing.
    – Can you give me some? *points to lotion* I would like to lotionize my arms.

    • You -  April 14, 2015 - 6:57 am

      You know it’s a sad day and age when people want to make putting lotion on into a single word. Is it really too much to just say ‘Nothing much, just putting some lotion on’ or ‘I would like to put lotion on my arms’? It’s just a few extra words. Besides, do you really think such a term would take off? It’s just too easy to say ‘I’m putting lotion on’, in addition to the fact that saying ‘I’m lotionizing’ just sounds incredibly stupid.

    • You -  April 14, 2015 - 7:15 am

      That’s not even a word by any actual standards. People like you are going to make future English look like this:
      “lol wu iwfbul b”

  18. Duaa Kamal -  February 4, 2014 - 5:42 pm

    You should add the word lumpatious.

    add expelliarmus as a word meaning to disarm, popularized in the Harry Potter books and movies

    • You -  April 14, 2015 - 7:18 am

      But how would it be used?
      “I’m going to expelliarmus you”?
      “He was expelliarmused”?
      I think the only way it works is the way in which it was originally used- as a single word, specifically describing the spell from the Harry Potter series.

    2. To appear everywhere

    sentence: 1. There is a spectulous amount of numbers.

    Dirctioner: a person who likes One Direction.

    • You -  April 14, 2015 - 7:27 am

      Wouldn’t directioner make more sense than dirctioner? Besides that, that’s a word that would last for maybe a decade at most- One Direction is just another pop band, and they’re going to eventually fall out of relevance as people start getting bored with them and listening to someone else. It’s practically inevitable- how many people still listen to music by Billie Holiday or Louis Armstrong? Not very many. The same thing is going to happen to One Direction, except perhaps quicker, because at least music from the 40′s had more lasting appeal than the crap that One Direction and others like them make.

    I’ve been coming up w/ my own words for quite awhile now. Here are 3 of them.

    Acronymate adv. (pron. ae-KRAH-nih-mayt): To make two or more words into a compounded acronym. (In this sense, a ‘compounded acronym’ is one where all the letters that are used are the first letters from each word making up the acronym, and those letters are put together in the same order that the words are in. That is to say just like a regular acronym.)

    Acronymize adv. (pron. ae-KRAH-nih-maiz): To make three or more words into a contracted acronym. (In this sense, a ‘contracted acronym’ is one where one letter can stand for itself and one other or more of its kind of letter. Words that don’t have any letters in the acronym are implied. (The letters are implied.)


    Cramnesia n. (pron. kraem-NEE-zhuh): The “amnesia” you get when you cram information or knowledge into your head. Ex.: The condition of not remembering and/or understanding anything or certain things (answers, questions, facts, examples, etc.) on a test in school because you crammed on your studying for it.

    for everyone who keeps posting “lumpatious,” I have a feeling this is actually a misprint for “bumptious.” Based on what other’s have defined it as, it has the same meaning and the spelling is different enough that it might not have been caught.

    offensively self-assertive: a bumptious young upstart. This could be interpreted as “rude, mean, etc…”

    I have a created a word. I’ve used it in the field without any explanation and most people seem to understand and accept it as it is.
    Word: “lothenite”
    Meaning: Diametric opposite of “favorite”.
    Pronunciation: [law - then - ite].
    From Middle English “loth(i)en” of which the modern “loathe” is derived.
    Note: Loathe retains its status as a verb (“Seriously dude, I loathe you so much right now!”) while “lothenite” takes on the currently NONEXISTENT role of adjective to describe one’s MOST HATED person, thing, etc.
    Please add this word!!
    To anyone who thinks “least favorite” is an acceptable way to express this idea.. please see http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/opposite
    Also, to demonstrate that there are in fact real cases of individuals wanting to articulate this concept, one only take a look at Google results for “opposite of favorite”.

    I think the word elledgism should be added to the dictionary. It is a nuance on the word illeism, which is to habitually refer to one’s self in the third person. The word elledgism refers to the times in the Bible when Jesus refers to himself in the third person.

  261. What Does The Fox Say -  January 27, 2014 - 6:40 am

    The word “snowrain” exist in Greek as “χιονόνερο”. Since the word exist in Greek for meteorological uses and generally for telling the weather, it could exist in English as well. The word means that it is snowing, but it isn’t cold enough for having all the droplets frozen, so it is raining simultaneously.

  288. wolf tamer and coal miner -  January 26, 2014 - 2:55 am

    Dear Dictionary.com

    I would like you to add a word called “lumpatious” from Sam & Cat from nickelodeon because, it is a nicer way for saying stupid or mean! It is a verb!

  291. Martin -  January 25, 2014 - 7:23 pm

    Both are used in gaming frequently

  296. Scia -  January 25, 2014 - 3:37 pm

    I’ve seen a lot of people use ‘derp’ and variants thereof. Generally:

    (noun) ‘a silly, possibly clumsy action or mistake’

    (verb, sometimes as ‘derping’) ‘to do something silly or make a silly mistake’

    (adj, usually ‘derpy’) ‘silly, and possibly accidental or clumsy’

    ‘Derpy’ is occasionally used as a synonym for “retarded,” and there are people who will get hung up on that. However, such use is pretty infrequent, and I think it’s shifting to predominantly mean ‘(accidentally) silly.’

  300. George Alvarado -  January 25, 2014 - 2:10 pm

    I recently wrote a Christian book that talks about the sin of not evangelizing. I coined the term “apocity” to describe this sin. My own definition goes as such,

    Apocity – (noun) a sin by which a person or local church is characterized by their inclination to drift away, to separate, or cease from calling, inviting, or commanding others to put their in Jesus Christ for salvation.

    verb. to commit apocity, can be done accidentally or purposefully

    Related forms are Apocite (n) and Apocitic (adj).

    An apocite is one who is characterized by their propensity to commit apocity.

    Although more geared toward the New Testament command to preach the gospel, the word apocity, in essence, is not saying something someone told you to say. It comes from the greek loan word apo-, cite, and the suffix -y.

    As the word is being used among the Christian community, it is my heart felt request that this word be added to the dictionary.

    Contact info concerning this word can be found here: http://www.watersourceministries.com/apocity/about-the-author/
