comment “Abstract nonsense” — does it have negative meaning?
In category theory, abstract nonsense and general abstract nonsense describe a type of proof which offers little insight into the objects under consideration: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abstract_nonsense The description is neither positive or negative, it's true or false.

comment What is the word for “the smell of rain”?
Never hear of Petrichor. Apparently it's the odor of Geosmin (4S,4aS,8aR)-4,8a-Dimethyl-1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8-octahydronaphthalen-4a-ol which I have heard of: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geosmin

comment What does the word “nanities” mean?
Nanites is likely meant, but it could refer to the opposite of inanities. Of course, that interpretation would turn the whole sentence into gobbledygook.

comment A word to describe being the only one privy to the truth
A cat at a doggy butt sniffing party would feel this way. Sadly, I don't think there's a single word to describe said feline.

comment How do emojis sort in a dictionary?
@Jim : Emojis are represented as numbers between 8 and 32 bits long en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicode and vary by font choice en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emoji . Oxford's opened a gigantic can of worms here, and I'd like to know how they plan to deal with it.
