(chem.) Density
Wood has a lower dord than water, so it floats
by dorque January 09, 2004
n. Physics & Chem. Density. A non-existant or ghost-word originating from mistakes in Webster's New International Dictionary editions 1934-1939. Original entry should have been "D or d" in the abbrevations section, when something messed up.
no example, as the word does not exist

the best word in the history of the English language. this word should be put back in the dictionary and should encompass not only density in the scientific sense but should also be used to describe a dumb person.
Why are you so dord?

Added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary incorrectly, its original definition is:

1. D or d (n): Abbreviation for "Density".
This was however entered incorrectly as "Dord", giving it this definition.

If you wanted to use it in the context of an adjective, it can mean...
2. Dord (adj): Alternate word for "Dense".

Due to this mistake it can however take on another meaning.

3. Dord (n): A word that is incorrectly used or does not technically exist either through intention or misconception.

"Dord" itself falls into this description, and so does pretty much everything else on Urban Dictionary.
This can be imagined as an abbreviation for "Denied word", as a mnemonic device though that is not its origin.
1. The loaf of bread has a very low dord.

2. Wow, this giant TV is pretty darn dord.

3. Urban Dictionary is not a place to learn, it's just a load of dords.
