This is not going to be a long post today because I am too irritated to even type. The Oxford English Dictionary has just added 203 new words for 2019. You can see the list online but frankly, I wouldn’t bother. It is filled with words that have been in use for decades: ancestory, auditorily, bare-bones, beachside, bull rider (bull riding), Cobb Salad, easy breezy, simmered, slam dunk and wedge salad to name a few to an entire range of sexual and near pornographic terms: circle jerk, coc# suck, coc# tease, dic# suck and more. To inexplicably phonetic slang speak: ayete, jafaican, sumfin, sumptin, summink, sumthin (the last for all meaning something) and whatev. Also included are such questionable choices as Saturnilian n.: An adherent of an early Gnostic sect founded by Saturninus in the second century; = Saturninian n. Now why after 19 centuries do we need this word and the accompanying Saturninian now?
There are also newly recognized phrases: Anchor child, apology tour, bad seed, angry white man, to hold one’s coc#, coc# blocking, a whole array of cocktail circuit related terms: cocktail umbrella, cocktail attire, cocktail dress, cocktail length, cocktail snack, cocktail waitress, cocktail ring, cocktail sauce, cocktail culture cocktail napkin. Then there’s fake news, skin lightener, No harm; no foul, a little something something (in all its new various spellings).
There are the ones you would expect to see like crypto currency, bitcoin and comp but there are also light saber, jedi and kapow. There are head scratches a plenty: how could we never have had Bar Mitvah and Bat Mitvah in the dictionary before? Do we really need nomophobia (fear of not having access to a mobile phone)? Or promposal? When I look at the list I think to myself English was a difficult enough language to learn before there were five different ways to spell and pronounce something. At least the poor old Cocker Spaniel finally made it into the dictionary.
