2020 Submissions

Welcome to the 2020 Submissions page!  Welcome to the new Decade!  And can you believe it’s been TEN YEARS of words?  Go back and enjoy some of the oldies but goodies on our Decade of Wordplay page.

We get new words regularly and work to post them as soon as practical.

Please note that not all words are posted.  Some are pretty far from the basic rules (one letter change, etc.). Some are two words which we post but don’t include in the contest.  Some are a little obscure – you may have to take out your actual dictionary to figure them out. Some we can’t actually figure out but sometimes post anyway.

OMG! It’s an election year AGAIN.  So we have definitely decided it best not to publish any that have a political connotation, since we’d rather not have the website seem partisan in any way and we didn’t want to referee. We also are being, what some may think is, over vigilant in our effort to not post words that might be offensive to our younger readers. (Besides, who wants our pages to start showing up on unfortunate search results.) Finally, we also try not to post words that are based on religious words or concepts or identifications (whether pejorative or not).

Most recent words are at the top.
