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.
