I was curious about the insistence on the neologism 'partycrasher' so I looked it up in the dictionary and guess what...?? It's not there!! (not even my computer software with its US dictionary accepts it)

'Gatecrasher' on the other hand has its own entry ..mmm ... and is accepted

The indignity of being contradicted may be great, but it doesn't justify misleading the learners who frequent this list – even on minor matters – so swallow your pride when the moment arrives.

As pointed out previously - party combined with crasher is just an adjective noun combination – as in ‘party’ [space – new word] ‘crasher’ - Crasher being an abbreviation of gatecrasher.

 

As yet,outside the bounds of this list, there is no such word as 'partycrasher'
