I play a lot of scrabble, and words with friends and often jump over to Etymonline to see the meaning or derivation of a word, only to find out that it isn’t here on Etymonline. I think it could be a significant improvement to Etymonline if you created a “Suggest a Word” option on Etymonline thus allowing for more user input toward building this dictionary. Obviously each word suggested needs to be checked and approved by the Admins/Creators. I mainly use Etymonline ‘on-the-go’ via the mobile app. Does this option already exist on the website? Thanks very much for your consideration!
Currently neither the website nor the app has such feature.
That’s good advice. Thank you very much.
I think maybe we need to combine this feature with the search function of some sort, so that only when a word cannot be found, the user is prompted to submit a request to the editor.
