  • Just a little question about the format of this.. As someone who doesn’t regularly read this blog and just followed an external link I’m a little confused about who wrote it, Laine Redpath Cole? Because it says “Posted by” which does not necessarily say “written by” to me. Was it submitted by someone in the UK? A user? Or is Laine Redpath Cole (great name) in the UK? – Maybe something that is just added automatically like “I just found out I have cancer. Sent from my iPhone.”

    I apologize, the problem is no doubt with me and my not being accustomed to reading blogs.

  • Hi Rebecca,

    You make a very good point and as a result I’m going to add an intro to future Open Dictionary word of the week posts. Something like: Anybody can add a word and its definition to the Open Dictionary.. Every week I choose a word from recent entries to rattle on about. Milquetoast is this week’s word.

    I hope that answers your question. Thanks for taking the time to write this feedback – it’s so useful to us!
