Trying to get a word into the dictionary

That’s quite a good idea:

Trying to get a word into the dictionary.

They actually are words missing and that are so easy to make (using the stem form with a prefix or a suffix)

At the same time, some made-up words tend to invade our newspapers and it’s a loss (Anybody else is allergic to the verb “to impact”?)

What are your thoughts? Any word you would gladly add to the English language?
