NYT Nod to New Words

I should really start reading the NYT. There is a consistent two week lag between the time they publish an article and I discover it though my network. That seems a bit too much of a delay for me, so as one of my endeavors for the New Year I’ll make the NYT part of my daily reading. We’ll see how that goes.

Anyway, less than 24 hours after watching Erin McKean’s TED talk on redefining the dictionary (fantastic!), I stumbled across this article featuring words that have recently integrated into our language through popularization. Both entertaining and enlightening, the article has saved me from performing at least 5 Google searches I would have surely done had I encountered these words in the wild.

lolcats, gorno, kinnear, and more...
