Are you "xenolexic"* ?
This word, and others, can be found in the list of "Unused but Useful: Oxford English Dictionary's Reject List."
Sandra Yeyati shared an interesting article that includes this note:
Oxford University holds 50 large filing cabinets crammed with 1000s of 6 x 4 inch cards detailing every declined entry for the Dictionary.
Of course, now the words are kept on computers.
*xenolexic: someone who suffers intense confusion when faced with a new word
And today we learn: the Oxford English Dictionary will not be PRINTED again!!! On-line OK…
