One entry found for ellipsis.

1 a : the omission of one or more words that are obviously understood
      but that must be supplied to make a construction grammatically
      complete
  b : a sudden leap from one topic to another


  ...

One entry found for embrown.

2 : to cause to turn brown


Finding this word whilst leafing through the dictionary
made it worth the research fee.

Couldn't find emgreen, which (IMHO) could be useful at times.
Perhaps if there are any lexicographers in the group ???
