Here at our Levidrome News section we will publish or link to existing articles or news stories about levidromes. You could almost call it Levidrome Central. If you have any interesting articles or links, feel free to contact us. We will be happy to add the information on our pages.
It will also serve as chronology of the events as it follows Levi's quest in making levidrome an accepted word by the popular dictionaries (Oxford, Merriam-Webster, etc.).
We have been adding a number of articles about levidromes lately. Unfortunately, when adding articles to one page, it gets to be pretty big after a while. It also becomes difficult to determine when certain events occurred.
So we have decided to change the style of the Levidrome News page to that of a blog. Since blogs are normally chronological, we had to post-date a number of articles to a point in time when they occurred, some even before this website came into existence.
Another advantage of a blog style News section is it provides a very easy way of looking up the history of events. It makes it easier for someone to link to a particular article rather than a page with combined articles.
The word levidrome appeared in the New York Times two consecutive months in a row.
William Shatner, an advocate for getting the word levidrome recognized by the Oxford Dictionary, recently posted this tweet on his Twitter page. Essentially, the New York Times printed an article about the word levidrome in their Sunday printed edition on July 29, 2018 (you can see the article here). There was an error in the article about Levi's hometown.
So on August 25, 2018 the NY Times published a correction. The correction which was in the Kids section of the Sunday NY Times stated:
An article in the July 29 kids section about how words get into the dictionary gave the incorrect hometown for Levi Budd, who coined the word "levidrome." He lives in Victoria, British Columbia, not Vancouver.
As William Shatner pointed out in his tweet:
Hello @OxfordWords! I wanted to point out the word #levidrome was used in the @nytimes today. That's a pretty amazing journey from not being a word a year ago. (thumbs up)
