Are you a wordsmith? Lover of wordplay? Or perhaps simply enjoy challenging those smarty-pants who are handy at wielding words? Try the free Addictionary!
The Addictionary is the democratization of language. Move over, Ms. Avoid-the-Passive-Voice and Dr. Latin-Roots, because in this online dictionary, the grammar, spelling and usage rules we learned in school don’t apply. The people decide which words belong here and what they mean. Prepare to LOL.
This alpha version of the Addictionary for the iPhone offers There Oughta Be A Word (“TOBAW”) challenges. The user-community provides the (often topical) definition that needs a word, and the you get to offer the word! And get permanent attribution for your clever creativity.
Have a definition in need of a word yourself? Got to http://addictionary.org and enter it. It’ll automatically appear for the rest of iPhone users, challenging *them* to come up with a word for *your* definition.
There’s always a fresh challenge to titillate your lexical taste buds.
