Note on trademarks and proprietary status 
This dictionary includes some words which have, or are asserted to have, proprietary 
status as trademarks or otherwise. Their inclusion does not imply that they have acquired 
for legal purposes a non-proprietary or general significance, nor any other judgement 
concerning their legal status. In cases where the editorial staff have some evidence that 
a word has proprietary status this is indicated in the entry for that word by the label 
trademark, but no judgement concerning the legal status of such words is made or implied
