Just to be clear, there is no "official" list of what is or is not in the
English language - the Oxford dictionaries (in their various editions)
reflect common usage of words only - there is no "dictating". There isn't
some secret cabal that decides what is or isn't a word - they just watch
what is being used and how, and describe it accordingly.
