This is a list of lowercase non-hyphenated single words found in the 2009-08-31 issue of the New York Times which did not have English entries in the English Wiktionary when this list was created (2009-08-31).
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.
