We’ve all heard of the Oxford English Dictionary, but this looks amateur when compared to Roman Armstrong’s Dictionary: the go-to place for all nonsensical words that previously never existed or are so archaic that they need new definitions.

That’s where you guys come in!

Every week, Roman Armstrong will nominate a random word of his choosing and ask for your suggestions as to what the definition could be.

We’re looking for the funniest, zaniest, believable and most out of this world definitions for the word that week and, once we’ve got our top three, they’ll be battling it out for your votes. Whichever is the most popular shall win and the word along with its new and improved definition shall go to the dictionary that everybody is talking about, Roman Armstrong’s Dictionary.

So what are you waiting for? Do you think you can contribute towards this ever-growing amalgamation of words?
