Somehow, having hundreds of thousands of words at our disposal isn’t enough for us English speakers.
New words are invented almost daily, with varying levels of success. Some words that start as informal works of imagination start to catch onto other people’s tongues and can even be inaugurated into the English Dictionary if they gather enough buzz. The spoken word has always been one of the most powerful devices known to man, broadcasting information across thousands of miles to millions of recipients without advertisement or incentive.
The transmission of words remains largely random in today’s world, but there are some ways to get new phrases kick started thanks to sites like Urban Dictionary. I’m going to cruise the many pages of obscure, disturbing and hilarious phrases to find a quality group of words that are trending each week. Hopefully, we might just be able to catch a word or two on its’ way to usage stardom.
