Word suggestion: antivax
« on: April 22, 2020, 06:31:56 PM »
I tried antivax in yesterdays EXCAVATING game, but it wasn't accepted.  Some dictionaries list it as anti-vax, others as one word.  Worth including as a rare word perhaps.

I could find the antivax form in only one dictionary, Wiktionary, which lists it as an alternative form of anti-vax. Nevertheless, that way of writing it has been used by a range of publications, including Nature, Wired, Psychology Today, the Sydney Morning Herald and Slate.

I'll add antivax as a rare word.
