The Chainsaw Edition Vol. 2
August 22, 2013
Picking up where we left off last week, with a few more alterations to the wonderful works of Webster’s. More of a sequel as opposed to a continuation. This would explain the “Vol.2” in the title.
The dictionary is a constantly shifting and changing entity. It has to be to keep up with our growing world and the terminology that goes with it. Each year thousands of words are considered and a choice few added to Webster’s repertoire. Simultaneously older words are altered or removed from it. All the while vocabularians (creators of new words) continue to challenge Webster’s by creating new words and terms.
Taking all this into consideration (and since words can obviously be created from scratch) brings up the question of how can any word not be considered a word? After all Webster’s itself defines a word as: a letter or group of letters, written, printed or spoken, having meaning and representing a unit of language. So technically anything you can say, that can be written down, sounded out and defined is a word. So I figured why not screw with the English language a little and quote a few of my own vocabularianisms.
Here are some new words of my own and some old ones redefined.
Bossame: something you are not.
