"levade" (noun) not valid word?? how so?

0 votes
"Levade" (and it's plural "levades") are clearly valid words according to MW, OED, etc. It is a loan word from French but is used in English frequently, in dressage terminology. Much equestrian terminology in use for decades (piaffe, passage) has been adapted from the French, as has ballet terminology, and of course music directions (most from the Italian). Would think that if loan words were not acceptable, "piaffe" would be invalid, as would, for example, "arpeggio" or even "adieu".

You will need to send this request to the makers of WWF who have control over the Word List. Contact Zynga/NewToy directly.
