Words are added to the dictionary all the time, but are words ever removed? Indeed they are.\

Payack does not count a word unless ití ha been published or cited at least 25,000 times around the world. He's not talking about street slang either

I find english to be a tricky and at times deceptive language.

Words like terrific and terrible should have the same relationship as horrific and horrible.

Comb
Tomb
Bomb

Pronounced differently


But I do like the flexabilty.

newspeak actually, but your point is well taken

doubleplusgood
unperson
thoughtcrime

it probably has more in common with german's tendencies to combine words in order to create new terms where the definition is inherent in the word itself

Etymologically terrific and terrible do have the same relationship...
