InterDiction (2007)

InterDiction is a project to create an anti-dictionary or an un-dictionary. It uses the entries rejected by Wiktionary to create a database of non-words, forbidden words, and nonsense.

It has four search tools: 1. Keyword, 2. New Entries, 3. Random Page, 4. A-Z Index.

InterDiction is a dictionary of Babel to compliment the 'Library of Babel' that Borges describes:

"...feverish library whose chance volumes are constantly in danger of changing into others and affirm, negate and confuse everything like a delirious divinity". (Borges, The Library of Babel).

InterDiction is featured in the Web Biennial 2007.
