I Love Steno Trivia Tuesday: Ghost Words

Trivia Tuesday PurpleQUESTION: What are ghost words?

ANSWER: According to Grammarly, ghost words are non-existent words that have no meanings. These words only exist because of printing errors committed in the process of manufacturing dictionaries.

According to Grammarly, an example of a ghost word is “dord”; a word that erroneously “appeared in the dictionary for eight years in the mid-20th century.”
