Technology always has a big influence on language. When the telephone was invented, they had to create a lot of new vocabulary – telephone (“tele” means far away and “phone” means sound), hang up (remember the old phone that was attached to the wall?) and dial (as a verb).

For today’s lesson, we are going to look at some new vocabulary recently added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary. I hope you enjoy it.
