Submit Words

This is where YOU submit your NEW WORDS to the Strange Human Dictionary! Please follow these guidelines to help protect the integrity of the database. Please also do a quick Google search first to ensure that your word/phrase was not defined by somebody else in the past. Now let’s see your genius words…

Name and Email: We need a way to get back to you, pretty standard.

Original Word or Phrase: Expose your gorgeous new word/phrase, pretty simple.

Definition + Use in sentence: It’s important for YOU to define your word or phrase. Using it in a sentence is another chance to show your creativity, but you can leave that to the SHN Editors if you’d like. We will clean up your grammar too!

Full name for credit: List your name exactly how you want it to appear in the credit under your words.

Twitter Linkback: We give you the option to link back to your Twitter handle to show more proof of who you are! Popular words can bring you a great deal of new followers, and even help you find your long lost cousin from Ecuador! Leave blank if you shun Twitter.

Date of Origin: For brand new words leave blank. For words from the past, enter the date as far back as you can provide proof.

Proof: We need a reference URL, blog post, or anything else that can verify your words if you submit a Date of Origin from the past. Without proof anyone can say they invented a word 10 years ago, plain and simple. For brand new words leave blank.

Math question:  Just a short quiz to block the spambots.
