It’s always surprising to me when there’s a below-average week for new registrations (660 new marks this week in class 025), but I’m adding mark after mark after mark to this curated list. Some weeks are just like that. We also had 259 cancellations this week, so at least there are some decent words and phrases that have been set free!
