My Favourite Links #12

This week’s link is Word Spy.  It is one of the most popular sites on the web for finding neologisms that have appeared multiple times in newspapers, magazines, books, websites and other recorded sources. Words come with a definition, an example citation, earliest citation, notes and related words. You can check by month, subject and they have a top 100. Here are a few examples to test you. Look up the answers on the site.


  1. BlackBerry prayer
  2. Boyzilian
  3. Brand slut
  4. Butt bra
  5. Celebutard
  6. Freeconomics
  7. Wal-Mart effect
  8. Wikification
