The director of the Collins Free Online Dictionary, Alex Brown, says he likes to keep his "ear close to the ground."

That might be why the Collins website opened up a "new word submission" page this past summer to hear and vet new user-generated suggestions for words and phrases. On Monday, Collins released its first list of approved summer-submitted entries. From "amazeballs" to "zhoosh," here are the most bizarre of the 86 new words that weaseled their way in (see even more here). Which ones shouldn't be words?
