JennieG BS: New Speak: words they are achangin (90* d) RE: BS: New Speak: words they are achangin 11 Mar 20


Charmion - "I was like" reached the sunny shores of Oz several years ago. The world is doomed, I fear.

I would like to know when a helpful hint (meaning an idea, as in "she gave me a hint for using those over-ripe bananas") became a "hack". "Hack", to me, denotes a rather nasty cough.

However, I quite like the way language is continually evolving and changing. If it didn't, we would all still speak in the style of Chaucer and his forebears.
