The English language is always evolving and new words are added to our vocabulary every year. This year I have decided to get a jump on the authoritative powers that be and provide a list of new words I have encountered in 2011 (OK, so they may or may not be new, there new to me):
1). Frienemy — (friend-enemy) Someone who will stab you in your back; talk about you behind your back; and generally become intimate with you and your significant other, so as to destroy the relationship, all while smiling in your face.
2). Wubby — (wife-hubby) Description of one partner in a homosexual relationship (which one I don’t know).
3). Wusband – (was-husband) Nuff said.
4). Hellimony – (hell-alimony) What she has to go through to get the court-ordered finances due her.
I actually came across these words used by various writers and recorded them because I
found them intriguing. I’d be interested in hearing from others what new vernacular you
may have encountered throughout this year.
Have A Great Day!
May the rest of your life be the best of your life.
