BUZZWORDS

Wed, Sep 15, 2010

Issue I

The Macmillan Dictionary Online provides interesting information about English words, including a section on ‘buzzwords’.  The latest one posted is clickjacking, which they define as ‘the malicious activity of taking control of an Internet user’s actions by making them click on hidden links’.

The new curriculum for languages includes a section on ‘neologisms’, so you might find some interesting exercises here. Or you might just be interested in reading more about word matters.  To access the information, you can send an email to the following address and subscribe to their newsletter:

The Macmillan Dictionary Online Team [elessons@service.macmillaneducation.com]

Or you can go the website for the dictionary itself for general information:

    I’ve been given a treasure of a book for Xmas, called ‘The meaning of tingo and other extraordinary words from around the world’ by Adam Jacot de Boinod. It’s delightful. Incidently ‘tingo’ is Easter Island and means ‘to take all the objects one desires from the house of a friend, one at a time, by borrowing them’ I’ll work out a way to use the book in class somehow!

  2. Many thanks for discussing this good subject matter on your site. I came across it on the search engines. I will check back again if you post more aricles.
