The New Lexicography (or) Wordination Postenko
 / 

Sure, the Oxford thesaurus is gonna be great when it comes out. But what happens when the bounds of existing English past and present are simply not enough?

Wordoid.

It’s meant for naming products, websites, etc.—but I like the (silly) notion of an app like this as a general-purpose tool. Writing a blog post, need a new word? Done. It’s parlineasy.

Note the crucial indicators that Wordroid provides: Is the domain available? Are there any search results for this word yet? Welcome to the new lexicography. (Prelexicography?)
