  • Hi Hernandez. Digging your words and quotation, but a quick suggestion. If you want, you can create lists of words (there's an orange link to do so at the top right of your profile). Then you can add the words to the list, and comments to the words in the list. One other thing to note is that Wordnik is case sensitive, so 'Riveted' is considered a different word than 'riveted.' People general list the lowercase version unless it's a proper noun.

    If you have any questions or suggestions about the site, please let me know (john@wordnik.com). Welcome, and enjoy!
