    640 νέα λήμματα στο Merriam-Webster

    The English language never sleeps, and neither does the dictionary. The work of revising a dictionary is constant, and it mirrors the culture’s need to make sense of the world with words. There are always new things to be named and new uses for existing words to be explained. A release of new words is also a map of the workings of a dictionary—you get to see what we’ve been up to—and of how words from different contexts come to reside in the same place.

    It all begins, in each case, with evidence of words in use. Each word follows its own path at its own pace before its use is widespread enough to be included in a dictionary. We watch as words move from specialized contexts to more general use and we make citations for each word in order to draft our definitions. This means, in other words, that we have the receipts (in a manner of speaking).

    Ουφ — ακόμα αγωνιζόμαστε να μάθουμε τις παλιές.

    Από την άλλη, δεν με εντυπωσιάζει ότι τώρα θυμήθηκαν, ας πούμε, την Goldilocks (zone). Εμάς εδώ μας απασχόλησε το 2011!
