List RulesFunny fake terms that should be officially adopted by dictionaries everywhere.

What if you could add your own made-up words to the dictionary? Good news folks - now you can add them to this Ranker dictionary! This is your very own list of words that should definitely be words, but aren't considered true words by the rest of the world. But who cares what they think! These words are convenient, thought-provoking, humorous, and above all, these specialty locutions are descriptive words that haven't made it into the general lexicon (yet). 

Every group of friends or family develops their own slang. You've probably been sitting on some snazzy letter blends, so now's your chance to share those words with world! Enlighten the rest of us by adding your favorite non-words to this list. Next up: we contact Webster.
