A petition from a small group of people from a small town in South India, Georgetown, has reached the ears of executives of The Oxford Dictionary.
It all started when Jimmy got a dictionary for his 8th birthday. He began looking up the meaning of words he spoke at ‘ome and at school. Jimmy was confused. He spoke English, but could not find half of the words he used in the Oxford Dictionary.
Realising this was a great omission, the little town of Georgetown petitioned the executives to immediately add “ablee” to the dictionary.
The official meaning of ablee is “a contraction of the words I believe“. Ablee is now joins the ranks of other commonly used contractions like can’t, won’t and such.
