We are always on the lookout for new, emerging and interesting words to add to the Macquarie Dictionary, so please let us know if you know of one.

Who's down to get a banh mi after the wall of death tonight? Might meet a silver fox there too. But hope he has a bum gun at home and not family cloth!
