There are seven words within our 3letterword list that are not yet "Internationally accepted English words." Our intentions were to offer you the most "official," yet "all inclusive" list possible, so you will find that these seven are "separated" from the rest by using a ~ tilde instead of a – hyphen before their definitions.
Also, there are only two of the "official" English three letter words that are not included in our list above. They are "lod" and "puh."
But instead of reconstructing our "big display" or the index above to include these two words, we will use them, along with the seven additions, to start a fresh list of "new 3letterwords" below.
You may send us yer own additions if you like, and this "neo glossary" will continue to grow. In fact, "yer " already a part of it from the start!
You may have noticed that the word "yer" is not defined in our list above, yet we use this shortened form of "your" throughout our entire site. So,"yer," the tenth entry!

emo ~ a music genre;"emotive"(melodic punk) etc ~ etcetera; everything else/all the rest/more
fam ~ slang for"family";one's "kin"/yer "familiar" grr ~ to make a sound like a wild animal or dog
lod - nativity/ generation (a rare Biblical word)neo ~ new/ recent/ latest/ a "near earth object"
nug ~ short for "nugget"/ a "bud"of marijuana num ~ number/a man,"numb" via technology puh - a word of contempt or disdain (poh, bah)
yer – a shortened spelling of "your" (also you're)
