This is a list of lowercase non-hyphenated single words found in the 2008-02-04 issue of the New York Times which did not have English entries in the English Wiktionary when this list was created (2009-03-03).
Please create these entries if you are able. Feel free to maintain and annotate the list as well. Typos and non-English words can simply be removed. English words which may not qualify for inclusion for any reason can be sequestered at the bottom of the list.
The quotes often provide good usage examples and attestation evidence and, in most cases, should be included in the entry or citation page for the lemma.
To activate the "add" links, which simplify the addition of citations, add the following code to Special:Mypage/monobook.js, and clear your cache:
importScript('User:Visviva/pretext.js');When this is done, clicking the "add" link should preload the edit form with a dummy entry including a formatted citation for the passage in question. In some cases a "notemp" link is also provided; this generates a template-free version.
In lists created since 2008-02-03, false blue links (entries that exist but lack an English section) are marked with a "*".

2008 February 4, Allan Kozinn, “Drama in Stories Written in Sounds”, New York Times:add
- The most vital works were Nico Muhly’s post-Minimalist “Stride” (2006) and excerpts from Jefferson Friedman’s brash, insistent String Quartets Nos. 2 and 3 (1999 and 2005), played electrifyingly by the American Contemporary Music Ensemble.
2008 February 4, Mike Hale, “Crossroads of a Million Private Lives”, New York Times:add
- The film, which was written and produced by Michael Epstein and has its premiere on most PBS stations on Monday night, is at its best when it sticks to its primary concerns of commerce and technology (rather than aesthetics), beginning with Cornelius Vanderbilt’s construction of the original Grand Central Depot on 23 acres in what was, in the 1870s, a squalid industrial zone in the netherlands of Manhattan.
2008 February 4, Susan Dominus, “Safety Messages That Sound Like Silence”, New York Times:add
- It’s just that with the beat-driven Muzak emanating from some unidentifiable source, the rumble of distant trains, the clatter of rolling luggage and a live Peruvian panpipe version of Air Supply’s “Without You” all mingling at high volume, the listener had to strain to hear Mr. Roker’s voice, which sounds, it turns out, as if it’s being transmitted via walkie-talkie.
