The Millionth Word

The English language’s millionth word arrived this week – and sadly it is neither Slumdog nor Jai Ho. Not even Chuddies.

The millionth word, disappointingly, is Web 2.0 – something that’s probably spun by new generation spiders.

But I am surprised that English has only around a million words in its kitty. I was pretty confident that my personal vocabulary held more than a million English words.

Or maybe I misunderestimated.
