If you have read the main dartitis page on this site then you will know I am trying to get the word ‘dartitis’ recognised and included into the Oxford English Dictionary (OED). I have for the past nine months collected articles, extracts from books and sent these to the OED to show how much the word is in use. In a last attempt ditch attempt I have sent the OED a recorded copy of ‘Darts Tarts’ documentary shown on BBC TV. In the documentary Eric Bristow features along with less well known dart players talking about ‘dartitis’ and how it has affected them.
I believe I have sent enough now to the OED for them to seriously consider the entry of ‘dartitis’ into the dictionary and will let you now the outcome should it be successful.
