A short list of five new words to watch
It's a dog-heavy list, but we know a lot of people like it that way. When we look through our words to watch, often submitted by you for consideration in the Macquarie Dictionary, we enjoy hearing new coinages as well as words that may have been around for a while but are getting more and more popular. If you're interested in learning about how words get into the dictionary, you can read about the process here.
This month, aside from the dog content (also discussed at length in this dedicated episode of our podcast, Word for Word) we also look at a new term for the complicated world of modern dating in microcheating, as well as a trend that may or may not have been a publicity stunt, in the avocado latte.
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. Be sure to vote for some of these when we post them on our Instagram stories.
