Contribute to The Dictionary of Urbanism

Do you have a comment on an entry in the published dictionary? Can you suggest a new entry – or a new meaning (or additional information) for an existing entry – that we should add to Urbanwords’ online supplement?

Readers of this website and of the printed dictionary are invited to contribute to the evolving dictionary. Please post your suggested amendments and additions here, supported by references wherever appropriate. If you want to know the meaning of a term not included in the printed dictionary (see the list of entries) or the online supplement, please ask.

All adopted changes to the dictionary will appear in the continuously updated online supplement, which will be incorporated into the printed dictionary’s next edition. Urbanwords will carry a growing body of information: more terms, improved entries, more meanings, and more examples of uses, both current and historic.

Cities are gentrified in sequence: first by the risk-oblivious (artists), then by the risk-aware (developers), finally by the risk-averse (dentists from New Jersey)
Bill Kraus
