This interesting list came across my Facebook feed yesterday and I’ve got to say I’m immensely pleased to discover I’m not the only one who has experienced some of these things. Really though, this is an interesting exercise in language and a good reminder that you should always leave room for growth in your own languages. Of course, a good chunk of these aren’t really nouns, but that’s beside the point.
It’s a testament to the ever-expanding experience of life that we’re encountering new things we need new words for. What’s the word for that? 😛
