Just a word

Working on projects like WiktionaryZ is a job do take a lot of my time. Often I would like to add just a few words to my home project, the Dutch Wiktionary. Today, I felt a need to add a word, record the pronunciation and translations to the English word for the same phenomenon. The word is uitzaaiing.

In Dutch the word has a clear agricultural background. It refers to how a weed, once it is established seeds itself to neighboring areas. It is one of those word that you hate to hear in another domain. Today I did. There is so little that I can do, I feel sad and can only hope for the best for Scott.
