The Macmillan Dictionary Online provides interesting information about English words, including a section on ‘buzzwords’.  The latest one posted is clickjacking, which they define as ‘the malicious activity of taking control of an Internet user’s actions by making them click on hidden links’.

    The new curriculum for languages includes a section on ‘neologisms’, so you might find some interesting exercises here. Or you might just be interested in reading more about word matters.  To access the information, you can send an email to the following address and subscribe to their newsletter:
