You try to find a word you heard somewhere in the dictionary, but it’s not there. Don’t worry, it’s not your fault. Over 600,000 words get submitted each year to be included in the esteemed Oxford English Dictionary, but only a few hundred make the cut. This does not mean that these words are not used, they are just not popular enough to make it into the dictionary.

These rejected words are stored in a vault owned by the Oxford University Press, and we have found some of these words rejects. If their popularity rises in the future, they may well find a place among the pages of the dictionary.
