Word of the Day by Wordnik

A simple widget to display a cool and unusual word of the day from Wordnik, the world's biggest dictionary.

Why don't you show pronunciations?

We often have audio pronunciations available for our words of the day at Wordnik.com. Readers can click through to the main word page to hear the pronunciation

I don't know any of these words!

We work hard to select really rare and unusual words that most people will not have seen before -- we like to think we're giving these hidden gems new life. They are harder to work into your everyday vocabulary, but think how great you'll feel when you do?

Can I suggest a word for your word of the day?

Yes please! Email us at feedback@wordnik.com with your suggestions. If we use it, we'll send you a Wordnik t-shirt!

Can I choose a word from my blog post as the word of the day to display?
