Locavore or Just Loco?

November 18, 2010

Every couple of years, our evolving culture pushes the limits of what gets space in Webster’s Dictionary.
When “ain’t” made it in, grammarians like me gasped in a collective shock.

While we are nearing the next update of the dictionary, let’s reflect on the 2009 additions…my personal favorite being “locavore:” Those who prefer to eat locally grown/produced food.

I am going to develop a webisode about locavores who made a few frenemies on their staycation. Really?

A fair warning, anything added to the dictionary since the 1980 edition I keep at-hand, will not be allowed into a Scrabble game with me.
