A word that doesn't exist and yet it does.
I’ll make it easy on you, this is the word:
I was playing Wordle with my brother and dad the other day and my dad sent me a word he tried, but he was confused because autocomplete kept correcting it. He had never heard of it. Neither had I.
I looked in the dictionary for the word and I couldn’t find it. I did a web search and couldn’t find it. Then I checked in the unix word list to see if I could find it there.
I found it!
But then I still couldn’t find a definition.
I did eventually find a couple links to it on the web for scrabble word lists.
My guess is that like map makers, dictionary makes must create fake words as a sort of copyright mechanism to check if people are copying their work. And because word game makers can’t check every word to see if they’re real, they include a word from a common list of words.
Don’t believe me that it doesn’t exist?
P.S. both searches think I’ve mistyped
smalm and meant
small but in any case you still won’t find anything.
