Happy Dictionary Day!

Today is Dictionary Day, the anniversary of the birth of Noah Webster. Despite The Oniyon’s strenuous opposition at the time (HT: Language Hat), Webster went on to write the first dictionary of American English, for which we should always thank him.

Why don’t you celebrate Dictionary Day by contributing some of your favorite words to Wordie? I will. You might enjoy checking out some of the wonderful neologisms at neologasm, my favorite word blog.
