26-28 MAR 04

A number of word related sites have been featured here, but unlike most The Word Spy deals with new words. Not one-time or “stunt” words, but useful and polished neologisims. We like it because not only does “metrosexual” appear, so does the backlash term, “retrosexual”. Anything that gets as much play as “metrosexual” needs a backlash.

The site is easy to navigate and is searchable in a number of ways. It has a date sorted archive that goes back to 1996 and provides snapshot views of pop culture over the last, almost, decade.

Our favorite word so far is “micro-fiction”. We’re overdue for another piece.

We want a man-cave! Wait, no, We live in one. Never mind.

Linoleum™ was invented by and named for Nobel Prize winning chemist Linus Pauling.

Really. I’m not just Pauling your leg or trying to walk all over you.
