Top Ten Sniglets

Finch
Author Rich Hall defines a sniglet as "any word that doesn't appear in a dictionary but should," which makes sniglet itself a sniglet.

Here are the best words which should be real and in the dictionary, but aren't. Note: This is not a list for new or shortened words with no clearly defined definitions. It also is not for variations of existing words like "Cringey/cringy" that mean essentially the same as an existing word (cringe-worthy in the above case).
