Wotcher Harry Potter fans!

I checked Dictionary.com today and tried to see how many signatures I needed on my petition. I was planning to just have a “Wotcher Awareness Day” and get a bunch of people to learn it and sign my petition. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ That’s not going to happen now:

How does a word get into the dictionary? How can I get my word into the dictionary?

A word gets into the dictionary by being used. That’s the only way. Lexicographers – the people who make dictionaries – don’t make words; they find them and record them. They are like the entomologist who goes into the rain forest looking for new species of beetles. Similarly, you can’t invent a word and petition to have it admitted into the dictionary. You can invent a word and use it, of course, and if your word catches on it might end up in the dictionary some day. However, this is extremely unlikely.
