Welcome to the Alternative Dictionary. This is where the English-speaking world comes to teach and learn new English words.
We don't do ordinary.
Anyone can add a new word to the dictionary or edit an existing word or definition. If you can add a word, go here. To edit an existing dictionary entry, click the "Edit" button next to it.
You may link to any page on the Alternative Dictionary web site. No need to ask first. Deep linking allowed. If you want to link to a specific dictionary term, click the "permalink" link below it to load a page that contains only that definition.
In short, we currently only allow English words (or foreign language words commonly used in English) and we want to keep this dictionary family-safe. Swear words allowed if st*rred. For more on this, go here.
