Is there an ‘official’ way to suggest a new word become part of the English language?
What are the criteria to adopt new words into English?
Creating a new word
Regulatory bodies and authoritative dictionaries for English
I was reading an article on how the Oxford Dictionary was being updated, and wondered what criteria would make a word suitable for being in a dictionary. I used to assume that all words would be included in a dictionary of such reputation, but this is obviously not the case. So my question is, what makes a word applicable to be added in the Oxford Dictionary? Is there a process for choosing these new words? Thanks.
