Seven new words to watch
Our previous six new words blog inspired a lot of discussion in the comments section of the Macquarie website. Below are seven more new words to sink your teeth into.
This month features a large portion of new health and fashion words. Hormotional is the feeling of a hormone related emotional reaction. Tassie tuxedo is a slang term for a puffer jacket, while shrinkles are the resulting wrinkles left behind after rapid weight-loss. A toblerone tunnel is the difficult to achieve gap between the top of your thighs. I would prefer to have the toblerone.
We also have BirthStrike, the social movement in which women refuse to procreate in response to climate change. Climate fears also featured prominently in our Word of the Year results. Rounding out the list we have Dual screening, something most of us do every day, we might even catch some influencer fraud while scrolling on our multiple screens.
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.
