N.B. – this is a Beta version of the www.quickdef.com site and whilst its construction is moving forward at a pace, it is nevertheless far from complete. That said, we warmly welcome not only all word contributions but also comments and suggestions from those interested in words – please write to us at contact@quickdef.com. During the Beta phase, please feel free to experiment and add as many words and/or missives as you wish, in any event we commit ourselves to rectifying or removing any entries you are not happy with within 24 hours.


Dear Visitor,

Quickdef is a website devoted to offering previously unpublished and family-friendly word definitions to the general public using a description of exactly 10 words for each – no more, no fewer.

The general aim is that each definition shown on the site should flow from an original contribution made by a person we refer to as a Wordsmith.

The Wordsmith is usually also a member of the general public who has an interest, professional or personal, in the English language and more particularly in words, philology, dictionaries etc.

By virtue of his or her contribution made to the site, the Wordsmith is also entitled to add a personalized missive to the said definition.

The personalized missive of the Wordsmith should again be made up of exactly 10 words – no more, no fewer and could relate to your own name, the name of your chosen good work or charity, your company name, the definition of your passion or indeed any other family-friendly concept of your choosing.

We have also put in place (again this is a Beta version) a number of forums (or fora) for those Wordsmiths who might wish to contribute a considerable number of separate word definitions or who have an interest in a particular field e.g. medical or legal words.

Master Wordsmiths for words from the legal world
Master Wordsmiths for words from the medical world
Master Wordsmiths for words from the advertising world
Master Wordsmiths for words from the world of English Teaching
Master Wordsmiths for words from the world of railways
Master Wordsmiths for words from the world of management
Master Wordsmiths for words from the world of financial analysis
Master Wordsmiths for words from the world of accountancy


Please feel free to suggest other specialist fields by writing to me at contact@quickdef.com .

Thank you very much indeed for coming onto our site; I look forward with great interest to reading your contribution.

Yours sincerely,
Sam Johnson (Mrs) – Dictionary compiler in Chief
