Unwords.com maintains a collection of words that individuals and groups have made up at some point in time to describe things that aren't associated with a term in the English language, or to describe them with a term that is better suited, or to describe things for which they didn't know the real term. In any case, these unwords, as we call them, do not normally exist in the English dictionary. We hope someday to see some of these unwords in actual dictionaries where future generations will learn to use them as common terms.
The concept for this site was originally created in early 2001 and gradually developed to a real website that summer. The site was featured on many popular culture sites and even some radio stations. Unwords was a hit.
After a year in operation, a worm got into the server and we were forced to shut down the site. We had plans in the making to redesign the website, so we took this opportunity to develop a new site. Due to the worm, we could not bring the website back into operation from its original designs.
After about six months in operation, we relocated the server back home after graduating from college. Shortly after, we were doing some regular maintenance on the server and ran across a software bug which causes much of our software to malfunction, so we pulled everything off the server and installed a newer operating system. However, the new software had newer database modules and so the site had to be recoded. After studying the new method and some testing, we recoded the site. To make the job easier, we redesigned the website and are working now on more features than there have been in the past.
Presently, we are run out of the capital district of New York. Coming this fall, some great new features will be coming to the website to make it much more interactive and exciting. Stick around and see the next big thing on the front of words.
