New English Definitions
« on: September 08, 2008, 07:43:53 AM »
Hi everyone

There is a new book being released in the uk with regards to new definitions being added to dictionaries. :o ;D


Examples include:


Valentine' Day (n)

Occasion each year when men send their loved ones flowers-and sometimes their wives get them, too.


Amalgamation-

A gathering of dentists


Call Out Charge-

Money paid to a plumber for the privilege of offering him work.


Pessimist-

Optimist who learns from experience.


Windbreak-

A few days' respite from the Atkins diet.


And a special one for you Mark-

Fortitude-

The courage needed to admit turning 40 (I know, a little premature) ;)

Wow interesting that they would really ad things like that. I will definately have to have a copy of it in order to see if there is something I am missing. Which is not hard to do once you reach 40. lol
