  • Said of a word (slang, usually) that is not included in any dictionary.

    From The Language Wars by Henry Hitchings:

    "Slang is a kind of sport; Otto Jespersen remarked that like all other sports it essentially belongs to the young. Slang is playful. . . Words undictionarized are considered smart and snappy; they have yet to be tamed."
