This is a list of lowercase non-hyphenated single words found in the 2009-07-08 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 "*".

2009 July 8, Mitch Potter, “Amid the surreal, a moment of innocence”, Toronto Star:add
- It ranged from tacky (hundreds gorging themselves at McDonald's kioskse) to creepy (pop star Usher, stepping down from the stage in midsong to place his hand on Jackson's casket) to maudlin (all hands clasped in a well-intentioned but saccharine singalong of "We Are the World"), amid a video montage from the comeback tour Jackson never gave.

2009 July 8, “Two identities, lost and found”, Toronto Star:add
- The musical performances covered his catalogue and other tunes, with varying results: Mariah Carey was outsung on a duet of "I'll Be There," ceding little known Trey Lorenz the ascending volley of notes in the track's sweet spot; John Mayer highlighted Jackson's gift for melody with a guitar instrumental of "Human Nature"; for "Jesus Is Love" Lionel Richie imbued his reassuring voice with a preacher's fervour; and a pregnant Jennifer Hudson delivered an outstanding version of "Will You Be There?" that ended with Jackson's vocals reciting the song's poignant bits.
2009 July 8, Morgan Campbell, “Jays sunk by Burrell HR”, Toronto Star:add
- Fifteen minutes after Pat Burrell's 11th-inning walkoff homer off Brandon League handed the Jays a 3-1 loss last night, Jays starting pitcher Marc Rzepczynski pulled on his shirt, oblivious to the cluster of reporters inching closer to his locker.
