Advance a Word Into the Presses!
The only way that a new word can be added to the dictionary is if that word is already being used by a considerable group of people. This means that many useful, silly, or time-saving words are rejected from formal print. I invite my fellow writers to present a word that they believe should be considered for the dictionary (and how it is used), so that we may begin using these words in our own writing, spreading its use. I look forward to seeing what new vocabulary I may obtain through this challenge.
baditude/battitude - a cross stance
- a mean-spirited, self-righteous stance
- an irascible stance (bad attitude)
sneakret - a sneaky secret such as a surprise party or a gift (sneaky secret)
blitherot - an extremely stupid, foolish, and/or nonsensical person (blithering idiot)
flavorite - one’s fave (favourite flavour)
If I may advance one word to the presses only, I'll go with my first and spell it 'battitude'. I wrote it, battitude, into a non-fiction poem, 'explicit and indefinite facets of life', in the middle of the night a couple of weeks ago. (Then I published the poem in my poetical ebook by the same name, explicit and indefinite facets of life on Barnes & Noble.) :)
