This is a list of lowercase non-hyphenated single words found in the 2009-05-07 issue of the Toronto Star which did not have English entries in the English Wiktionary when this list was created (2009-08-22).
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 "*".

- The script, by Transformers scribes Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, is larded with constant time travel (I lost track of the dates), planet-sucking black holes (caused by a scarlet goo risibly called "red matter"), weird grudges that seem to last millennia and other astro inanity.
2009 May 7, Ben Rayner, “Thunderous Mastodon almost too much for Opera House”, Toronto Star:add
- For all the feats of awe-inspiring technical wizardry these four incredibly gifted musicians guitarist/vocalist Brett Hinds, bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders, guitarist Bill Kelliher and superhuman drummer Brann Dailor display in the run of the average tune, the most satisfying moments in a Mastodon show might well be when all that fancy fretwork periodically converges into a single, ungodly, downtuned mega-chord that must surely be audible in the depths of hell.
2009 May 7, Garth Woolsey, “Sports nut goes from RIM to centre of hockey world”, Toronto Star:add
- This is about the league's rules and the enforceability of our rules.
2009 May 7, Betsy Powell, “Accused killer 'wanted me dead,' ex-friend testifies”, Toronto Star:add
