Adopt a Word at Wordnik!

Adopt a word at Wordnik and help support our mission of collecting and sharing all the words of English!

For just $25, less than fifty cents a week, you can adopt a word—almost any word—for an entire year. You'll also get:

  • Your word linked to your site or Twitter handle!
  • A downloadable, printable certificate commemorating your adoption!
  • Stickers!
  • Send your word to the front of the line for updated data!
  • An 'adopter' badge on your Wordnik user page!
Your adoption donation is now tax-deductible, where permissible by law.
