Given the very limited success of the New Words Scrapbook post back in October (a massive 5 entries, 2 of which are mine and one from another teacher at a different college), I'm going to attempt to revive it here. Now we're doing more work on Language Change and less on coursework, you might actually have some time to post examples of new words you've come across.
My favourites so far are "bluetooth high-five" and "Co-D", the definitions of which can be seen on the original post.
Post your new words here and you can win packets of Asda's Whatevers (the sweets like Lovehearts but with chavvier messages).
