About the Open Dictionary

The English Language is changing all the time.

At Macmillan Dictionaries, we are constantly monitoring the language to ensure that we keep an up-to-date record.

You can be a part of this enterprise by suggesting a word for our Open Dictionary. We'd love to know about your English:

  • What words have you come across that aren't in any dictionaries?
  • What words are you using that may be exclusive to your part of the world, or your part of the web?
  • What words have you always used in English that you can't find in most dictionaries and that you think should be there?

Let us know by adding your word to our Open Dictionary here.
