And a video from the White House about their brewing process. Hooray!
A new edition of the Concise Oxford English Dictionary arrives in stores today, and it contains some 400 new(ish) words, including woot, sexting, retweet, and cyberbullying.
To make room for the new, some words that have fallen out of use had to be excised from the edition’s pages, such as “brabble” (meaning “paltry noisy quarrel”) and “growlery” (a “place to growl in, private room, den”). The editor of the Concise Oxford English Dictionary notes that we might call a growlery a “man cave” nowadays, but growlery is so evocative I hope it makes a comeback.
I want to open a bar and call it The Growlery. We’ll sell growlers of beer instead of pitchers, and have copies of Barguments on every table.
