This is a place we see people logging on in their lunch hours and delighting in playing with words, it is a snapshot of culture in flux, looking to understand itself through language. As the banner on the site proudly boasts: 3,256,400 definitions submitted since 1999. It is hard not to delight in the fact so many people are thinking deeply and comically about language and its ever-evolving properties. It’s also a forum for cultural exchange where we get a glimpse into what other Anglophone nations are doing with the language. Here, my favourite has to be the US “acoustic shave” – “the act of shaving with razor; not an electric shave”.
