Anonymous whispered : Love your blog so much! And i like the word biblichor... We need a word for such an awesome smell. But it's a word that someone's just made up, not an official English word. Are other words on your blog 'unofficial' words, or words not in usage? I thought they were all actual words. (Or is this the start of a campaign to get biblichor into 'official language'? :)
I always verify all the words I’ve posted here if they really exist in a particular place. Yes I know biblichor might be an ‘unofficial’ word for now, (I don’t know if I can call it a “campaign” or something) but words are inventions of humans, anyway - some are combination of words, or a derivation, or coined terms, or usual street and slang terms, that later became a common usage. Words are symbol of culture.
I’ve read few articles that there are still lots of English words, and words in other dialects, recently added / pending to be part of the official word in the dictionary of their countries. How does one became an “official” word? Usage.
Thanks a lot, by the way :)
