This is a list of lowercase non-hyphenated single words, lacking English entries in the English Wiktionary as of the most recent database dump, found in the 1988-09-16 issue of the Chicago Reader (2009-01-20).
Please create these entries if you are able. Feel free to maintain and annotate the list as well. Typos and non-English words can be removed, or sequestered at the bottom of the list if annotation is needed.
The quotes often provide good usage examples and attestation evidence and, in many cases, should be included in the entry or citation page for the lemma.
Clicking an "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.
False blue links (entries that exist but lack a section for the appropriate language) are marked with a "*".
