Scrumdiddlyumptious to Oompa Loompa: Roald Dahl’s splendiferous words are now in the Oxford dictionary

http://qz.com/779365/six-of-roald-dahls-made-up-words-have-been-added-to-the-oxford-english-dictionary-to-celebrate-his-centenary/

This is good news.

Because Roald Dahl.

Because Roald Dahl = childhood.

A great childhood.

Because childhood = imagination. And fantasy.

And the idea that kids can be heroes. And grown ups are evil.

And that one determined child can save the world.

This is good news.
