Words missing from the dictionary

The word of the day is enahoro, which is a word in some Ghanian native language meaning to throw one's room-mates out in order to have some private time with a partner. I learnt this by reading the research proposal of someone who wants to do a PhD in the linguistics of how native languages influence local English slang.

And yes, I am working on my own proposal, but this was too good not to post. Also, apologies for not posting much public recently. I don't want to talk about work stuff in public posts, and work is taking up lots of my life just now, between the temp job I'm working 35 hours a week, and applying for real science jobs.
