Wikiwords are "words" that I (Crash Underride) use in edit summaries, some of which may be diffiult for other editors to know what I mean. So this list is to help others know what I am saying. They are listed in the same typeset that I normally use, most are all lowercase since I am usually tire after working hard on an article and I just don't feel like capitalizing properly in an edit summary. This list should in some instances be used along side my glossary.
