There are a list of words waiting to be offcially included into the lexicon. And as last year, they reflect the money-woes and the rapid rise of social networking. Here’s a sample of the new words:
Social notworking : Surfing a social networking site instead of working. Also: social not-working.
—social notworker n.
So all you Facebook and Orkuters who spend your office hours surfing these sites and this blog – you will soon have an official word to decribe yourself.
There are more:
Defriend: v. To remove a person from one’s list of friends on a social networking site. Also: de-friend.
Staycation n. A stay-at-home vacation. Also: stay-cation.
Recessionista n. A person who dresses stylishly on a tight budget.
I wonder if next year we could see a word like Satyamised.
