some new words
Macquarie Dictionary has added some new words, not the words like petrichor, bayard, hansardize and imprecation (those words are not new.)
A selections of interesting new words are: flashpacker, textaholic, bromance, toxic debt... for example.
Here are the definitions:
textaholic: noun Colloquial someone who sends an excessive of text messages.
nomophobia: noun a state of anxiety brought on by not having mobile phone contact, as from a low battery, no network coverage.
bromance: noun Colloquial a non-sexual but intense friendship between two males. (Think Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.)
toad buster: noun Colloquial a person engaged in the eradication of the cane toad.
and the word of the year, actually two words:
sources: Sunrise (4 Feb 2009), Seven News (4 Feb 2009)
(to Don: actually he knows what I am going to say, Antony does not speak English.)
