05 – Social Vocabulary

MichaelADVocabulary 6 Comments


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). Today’s 21st century technology is no different.
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.

To get the details of this English lesson, you need to listen to the podcast or the check the transcript for the example sentences and a word-for-word explanation.

  1. Hi Michael. This is a very good podcast. I enjoyed it. My favory social network is Facebook, but I also enjoy to talk with my friends and read news in Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn.

    1. There are 150 new English words that have been added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary in 2014.
    2. Jack got into social network in 2009.

  2. Hey there. I find this design way much more appealing that the blog’s design. And also, the interface is better too! Why don’t you update the blog? It’s so old school xD anyways, it’s just an opinion… love your work, thanks
