Editor’s Tip: Yes, language changes all the time. If it didn’t, we would still all be speaking Chaucerian English or perhaps something even older! And so we have new words that arise and enter our language. However, perhaps a word of caution is appropriate, perhaps we should think about a new word that we or someone or “they” create. Do we need it, is it meaningful? Examples: here are two new words rising from our younger generation…”a fail” (a new noun meaning “failure”), “to adult” (a new verb apparently meaning to engage in behaviors commonly expected from persons considered to be of adult age). Do you like those new words, are they going to be part of your everyday vocabulary?
