typado commented on the word pejorativity
This is a great word! It is in no dictionaries, but it crops up in several academic papers because there is NO OTHER WORD that sums up its meaning! Right now you can only say "I reject the manufactured pejorative sense of this word!" You should be able to say "I reject the manufactured pejorativity (or, I suppose, pejorativeness) of this word!"
So start using this word, people. Because it's legit.

typado commented on the word melange
Melange: also called the "spice" – is the name of the fictional drug central to the Dune series of science fiction novels by Frank Herbert, and derivative works.
This word is used enough in reference, scholarship and in conversation that it should be included as a definition.
