New York City, NY (PRWEB) August 05, 2014
A new blog post on social media jargon has just been published by eReflect on the Ultimate Vocabulary blog. The blog post titled "10 All-Time Classic Social Media Jargon Words That Were Bizarrely Created" covers words that everyone using the Internet probably already uses.
When people use words such as “buzzworthy “and “selfies” nowadays, they rarely think about the fact that these words were only recently created. These words are so much a part of daily life that “selfies” and “pintermission” and “twerk” are all words that have been added to the wider, global lexicon of English-speakers around the world, and many have achieved such wide use that they have been officially accepted as part and parcel of the English language.
eReflect asserts that the prevalence of such new words proves that learning new words can actually be quite easy. In any event, vocabulary improvement never needs to stay a boring, repetitive process. Vocabulary practice is in fact very entertaining and even eye-opening, especially when the new words are so relevant to day-to-day life. For instance, eReflect's article features the word “Twoosh,” a new vocabulary word that refers to tweets that are exactly 140 characters long.
The word “selfie” has gained global “buzzworthy” status since smartphones and social media usage by teens went truly mainstream. Today, everyone from national presidents to Hollywood stars regularly take, and talk about, selfies.
eReflect encourages students of English and native speakers alike to play with words more often. Vocabulary knowledge is a never-ending process, and it is a mistake to think that there are no new worthwhile words to learn.
There are many vocabulary games on line, and the Internet itself is a playground where words get created, go viral and head straight to the vocabulary wall of fame. As proof, it's only necessary to think of words such as “unlike,” “warblog,” “hashtag,” and “Me Time.” These words, which did not exist a short time ago, help people to understand how easy it is for new words to become so popular so quickly that they are used as if they have been part of the English language for years.
Social media, technology, and the ever-changing sociocultural circumstances give rise to new words and concepts on a daily basis, and the flexible English language is there to give names to these concepts and bring them to life. Like any other form of evolution, vocabulary building never really stops.
