One million words. Supposedly the English language can now claim over a million words in its lexicon. Only if you include words like “webinar,” now a fairly old addition, “weisure,” “staycation,” and now “naycation*.” Blecch.
I mean, I know the language is continually evolving and changing but, really, people ought to be embarassed to say some of these words. I try to avoid using them at all cost.
But they couldn’t come up with something better than “Web 2.0” as the millionth word? That’s been around since 1999 fercryinoutloud (now there’s a word)!
*What do you say to someone going on naycation? “Non voyage!”
