The sign above the shop window shouldn't read POHS but POSH, right?

NEW! QOTD for 9/12/2008

┐Which words would you advise Oxford University Press to remove from its Junior Dictionary?

PinkLincoln 12-09-2008 01:56 PM

the few words that I think children shouldn't rush to learn are surely omitted already, so I'd have to say I can't see any reason to remove any words (though I've never actually looked through a junior dictionary)

storm, teacup, pedantic and busybody

brightpearl 12-09-2008 02:39 PM

dictionary

as it's clearly meaningless

:)

YsaPur EsChomuw 12-09-2008 02:41 PM

I think intelligent will have to go soon, too. :eek:

brightpearl 12-09-2008 02:41 PM

And also kumquat as it sounds naughty.

And gesticulate.

Oh oh oh
...and cumulonimbus.

YsaPur EsChomuw 12-09-2008 02:48 PM

... and cow as it can also be holy!

brightpearl 12-09-2008 03:08 PM

Well, cows will go on being cows just the same as they have no idea whether or not they're in the dictionary. As long as religion leaves to Oxford what is Oxford's, it'll do just fine.


PS rectory
ever so filthy.

I mentioned cow because I suspect it was for religious reasons they'd left out bacon.

PS and annals must be full of grime, too.

I want bacon in my dictionary dammit...

and an extra definition of cheese! :mad:

*points encouragingly towards The Dictionary Game thread where one can post double entries to their heart's content with the faint hope of not winning the round under the The Multiple Entry Amendment* :p
