New Dictionary Words to Tickle Your Funny Bone
Each year in September, Webster's Dictionary adopts new words to put in their next edition. These tend to be words that have made their way into main stream American conversations. Let's see if you have heard any of these words dropped in casual conversation before.
boomerang child: A child who comes home to live after college or in their 20s.
cougar: an older woman who prefers the company of younger men
bromance: A movie about a male friendship; male friendship
tweet: A text message sent by a self centered conceded person who actually believes somebody cares what they doing
Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period of time.
Dopeler Effect: The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come at you rapidly.
I think my favorite is cashtration since I can relate to that experience as can many of you. Have you heard any slang words that you think should be added to the dictionary? Please share.
