15 words you won’t believe they added to the dictionary
I’m for gaydar, screenager, cyberslacking and Frankenfood — new words that mean something — but agree on the rest. The sort of thing that keeps me working at my Paul Fussell-inspired editing.
While resilience is already a perfectly good word that means the exact same thing, bouncebackability does sound much more like something a semi-literate alcoholic might put on a résumé, giving it that added appeal of mouthbreathability words like resilience lack.
