Did you stumble upon it while using a book dictionary? This is why I LOVE book dictionaries and only use online dictionaries for convenience. How are you supposed to find crazy new words anymore?
Why didn't I realize that till just today? Yes, I was looking in a 3-D dictionary to see whether "hairstylist" should be one word or two in a doc I was editing when "hagridden" caught my eye.
The only reason I was in the hard-copy dictionary was that my Internet was futzing.
Valuable lesson learned.
