The Non-Word Dictionary is a Safe Haven for Non-OED Certified Words

This non-word dictionary takes all the forgotten and expelled words and compiles them into their own dictionary. There are over 150 words that have been immortalized through the old printing process (which is also a bit extinct). I would actually love to use the word 'polkadodge' which actually means "the dance that occur when two people attempt to pass each other but move in the same direction."

As a grad of English studies, words like these are priceless! Thankfully this non-word dictionary has kept all those misguided words and categorized them into one place. I can't wait to get my hands on this!
