Have an entry request? Add it to the list. - But please:

  • Think twice before adding long lists of words as they may be ignored.
  • If possible provide context, usage, field of relevance, etc.

Please remove entries from this list once they have been written (i.e. the link is “live”, shown in blue, and has a section for the correct language)

There are a few things you can do to help:

  • For inflected languages, if you see inflected forms (plurals, past tenses, superlatives, etc) indicate the base form (singular, infinitive, absolute, etc) of the requested term and the type of inflection used in the request.
  • For words in languages that don’t use Latin script but are listed here only in their romanized form, please add the correct form in the native script.
  • Don’t delete words just because you don’t know them — it may be that they are used only in certain contexts or are archaic or obsolete.
  • Don’t simply replace words with what you believe is the correct form. The form here may be rare or regional. Instead add the standard form and comment that the requested form seems to be an error in your experience.

Tony Thorne's Dictionary of Contemporary Slang claims that the expression comes from the adjective boyed, which in turn comes from the verb to boy [5]. (We have the verb but not the adjective.) Dbfirs 22:13, 1 December 2015 (UTC)

  • bachelor griller - OneLook - Google "bachelor griller" (BooksGroupsScholarNews Archive) — I have added an article on this at EN:WP but it could do with a DICDEF and I don't have dictionaries with me. The term seems to be at least 100 years old in UK English but seems to be uncommon in the United States. SimonTrew (talk) 09:58, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
    Contrary to the remark in the WP article, I think this may have originated as a trademark: it is nearly always found with both words capitalised. Equinox 14:32, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

  • ultraracism: cf. ultraracist
  • unciferous: supposedly "bearing hooks" (adj) but I see little to no real usage. Equinox 02:25, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
  • unable as a verb, unabling (to make unable to do something). I found someone who uses this where I'd use the verb disable (I can't tell if this person has trouble with English or is just from a foreign country). But I do find a few google hits (539 in books for unabling). I'm wondering if we need an entry marking this word as a non-standard synonym for the verb disable.
