How to add a word to the Open Dictionary

We want to make sure that Macmillan Dictionary stays up to date. You can be part of this enterprise by adding a new entry to our crowdsourced Open Dictionary. It could be a new word, a new phrase, or a new meaning of a word that is already in the dictionary. It could be a word which is typical of the region where you live, or which is used in a specialized field that you work in or know about, or it could just be something so new that we haven't heard about it yet.

Before you add your new word, have a look at this chart! It will help you decide whether to submit your word. Please also note that we do not include content copied from other dictionaries.
