Many others have made important contributions to Wordsmyth. Thanks go especially to Jean Callahan, who edited the Children's Dictionary, Lynn Broquist, who shouldered the main writing tasks for WILD, and Sarah Kennedy, who kept us going in difficult times, and the many writers and editors who worked on the original dictionary and thesaurus projects.
