The Cultural Dictionary 2009


************************************************

This should make for interesting reading.  I haven't seen this dictionary before and is dated 2009 which means published previous years?  I wonder how good the contents are?

************************************************ 

A few new words in play these days, as found in Cramer-Krasselt's Cultural Dictionary. (via LAT; t/y Ed)

• Precycling (v.): Purchasing products based on how recyclable they are.

• Disemvowel (v.): To remove the vowels from a piece of text as a form of censure in order to render the piece more difficult to read; generally done by the moderator of an online community.

• Fauxmosexual (n.): A person who pretends to be gay, particularly as a way of garnering attention; a person who mistakenly believes he or she is gay.

• Kitchenheimer's (n.): When you're in the kitchen going around in circles because you can't remember what you went in there for.
