Should these seven new words go in the dictionary?
Every month, we review some of the new words as submitted by you for consideration in the Macquarie Dictionary. We are looking for interesting, Australia-specific usage, but we love all new, and sometimes old but relatively unknown words. This month, we had a plethora of submissions but we've picked a few of the more interesting ones below.
So, have you been influenced by the KonMari method? Do you know anyone who has a trailing spouse? Have you ever experienced hangxiety or engaged in sneating?
Let us know if you have any other suggestions. We are always happy to hear new words, no matter how big or small a usage they may have.
