    Addictionary :: What's your word?Addictionary.org is different and I like it!

    It is a dictionary but not in the usual sense of the word. In fact, it is a dictionary for the non-sensical sense of words. Language is alive and Addictionary celebrates this by showing you its offspring. You can look up words like Inverseratefruititarian and Mishmash and use these to liven up your blogposts and casual conversation.

    Don’t spend too much time at this because I’m sure it will lead to compunesia unless you are planning to use it as foreploy in which case you should be careful not to end up a jargonaut.
