  • Thanks vendingmachine! Our Kickstarter backers back in 2015 got the option of having their names appended to entries people found using the "Random Word" feature. The backer name will change with each reload, and only shows up when the word is found randomly (so not if the page is loaded via search or a direct click). Hope this helps!

  • Thanks, Erin.

    random word is one of my favorite aspects of wordnik. And chiacoan peccary is a good example of how fun and random this feature can be!

  • "The Chacoan peccary has the unusual distinction of having been first described in 1930 based on fossils and was originally thought to be an extinct species. In 1971, the animal was discovered to still be alive in the Chaco region, in the Argentine province of Salta. The species was well known to the native people, but it took a while for Western scientists to acknowledge its existence. It is known locally as the tagua."
