    What new words do you think should be added to the English Dictionary?

    Example: people now say "I will Google it later". It even has a Past Tense. "I Googled it". Any more?

    there's actually a word for this - a sniglet is defined as a word that is not in the dictionary but that should be.  there are a bunch of lists of sniglets people have come up with on various websites.  here are some of my favorites:

    acronymnnym - a redundancy created by following an acronym with the final word of that acronym, such as ATM machine.

    shuggleftulation - the actions of two people approaching, trying to get around each other, and muttering "thanks for the dance."

    frust - the small line of debris that refuses to be swept onto the dust pan.

    plerk.

    Play and work combined. My brother used to say the key to loving what you do and doing what you love was to make sure your work was oyur passion and had an element of play involved.
