Save the Words

My word is starrify, a verb meaning to decorate with stars. A word that should have never been booted from the dictionary, in my opinion. But I tend to starrify most everything, so I might be bias.

Anyone can adopt a word, but once you do, you become responsible for using the word as much as possible to integrate it back into popular usage and hopefully, back into the dictionary!

What word did you adopt?
