  • Hi Stellibo,

    to 'add' a word to wordnik, you just need to look it up using the search menu, and add a comment to it.
    Adding a word to a list helps a person keep track of new words they run across.
    So unfemmed could be a word you keep in mind for future use.
    Most of the word definitions are from public domain sources like Wiki's and the Century Dictionary.

    https://goo.gl/9HXhSr

    "But all this is, in our opinion, very unnecessary, while it is indicative of a jealousy with regard to fame, unworthy of him who has discovered whole words.  And, after all, the new term is by no means appropriate.  An asteroid is, from its derivation, "a body resembling fixed stars:" newly-found heavenly bodies have no one circumstance in common with those luminaries. "

    July 17, 2015

  • a buckyball

    July 17, 2015

  • The problem is that the word is re-defined every time someone gets a shinier newer telescope and sees new things, and they go around telling everyone else how 'wrong' they are because they redefined a word for themselves.

    We created the word asteroid for all the items in the asteroid belt, but we haven't done that for the oort cloud and the Kuiper belt.

    They use clumsy words like TNO Trans Neptunian Objects , KBO Kuiper Belt Objects, and the useless phrase Dwarf Planet which doens't tell a listener much other than the size of the object.

    We've created words like Centaurs and Trojans to classify objects, and those words tell a scientist where those objects are and what their orbit is, but once you get past Neptune, the language turns awkward and we let awkward scientists redefine the language.

    Where are these 'Dwarf Planets'? Some are in the asteroid belt, some in the Kuiper belt, and one has an orbit which is in resonance with Neptune and crosses Neptune's orbit.
    dwarf planet is a poor descriptor of an object. It's the astronomical version of 'thingy' or 'thingamajig'. It's like going into a toolbox and having wrenches, pliers, screwdrivers, and calling everthing else a 'gizmo'.
    It's lazy. It's not even a good scientific categorization.

    If the astronomers want to create a new label, they should pick a label that tells a person what it is that they're looking at. dwarf planet is the scientific equivalent of gizmo; you're not really categorizing something.

  • thsnks slumry, it's walnuts that are 'drupes'.

    July 16, 2015

  • To let someone tell you Pluto is not a planet is to let some pedant make arbitrary decisions about what words mean and do not mean.
    A nut used to be a hard shelled thing. And the botanists came by and told us that "Walnuts are not nuts, they are drupes." 


    Here they are, in the 1800's, after discovering Ceres, acknowledging  the Greek definition, but then trying to 'redefine' the word to suit themselves.
    https://goo.gl/dz60s1  and then in 2006, they try to redefine the word again and when someone tries to call Pluto a planet, it's met with scorn from a pedant who gets hung up on a revision of a revision while ignoring the usage of the word that people have had for thousands of years.

    Someone replied to me with a 'Well, if Pluto is a planet, then the moon should be a planet too because it's the same size.'.   Well, the funny thing is, Luna used to be called a planet.

    It's hard to take the pedants seriously when they focus on redefining existing words all the time.
    It's just as bad as the botanists telling us that walnuts are not nuts.

    edit- walnuts, not peanuts.
