I have listed in the table below the top 10 channels (by number of subscribers), as per December 9th, 2014. Do let me know if you feel I have forgotten a popular channel!

Le dico des mots qui n'existent pas (et qu'on utilise quand même) : A n'y rien comprendre !

Le dico des mots qui n'existent pas (et qu'on utilise quand même) : A n'y rien comprendre ! | Lexicool.com Web Review | Scoop.it
Nouveaux mots issus du langage commercial.

Dans la même veine que le dictionnaire du nouveau français, ce dico des mots qui n'existent pas (et qu'on utilise quand même), au jour d'aujourd'hui  risque d'effrayer les lecteurs ignorants du langage commercialo-informatico-managérial,  ceux-là mêmes qui se sentent également  éloignés du jargon markéto-cosmétique,  ou encore indifférents à l'univers des gamers , des joueurs de poker.

 

Si de plus, ces lecteurs ont (à regrets) un niveau limité en compréhension anglaise et une  petite aversion envers les journalistes sportifs, il est à parier que la plupart des mots de ce dictionnaire seront vite blacklistés, assurément pas additivés à leur vocabulaire usuel.

 

Hélàs, cette attitude, finalement plutôt attachiante, mais sans douteinentendable pour des adulescents kikoulol, des no-life, certains trentenaires orchidoclastes, pourtant swags et trendys, pourrait vite être prise pour de la mélonite aigue, voire pour une tendance à se pépériser.

 

 

Aussi, pour éviter tout barriérage, tout bashing de la part d'une génération, même si tout cela vous semble abracadabrantesque, acceptez, comme un private joke, de dire tchourissage ou cométissage(à propos de Philae) plutôt qu'atterrissage, de bilanter, de candidaterplutôt que de faire un bilan ou de poser votre candidature.

 

Osez raccourcir processus par process et vous deviendrez ainsi, lefacilitateur à liker sans avoir besoin pour cela de mettre en place un quelconque grenelle ou d'inviter à un cocktail déjeunatoire tous lesarchidominants qui vous insupportent mais semblent pourtant si epsilonesques.

 

 

 

 

Ainsi,  même sans devenir une personne bankable ou un follower averti, il vous  sera aisé demythonner votre âge, peut-être même d'aphoner un verre sans risquer l'émétophobie.

 

Dans cette France austéritaire, il est bon parfois de se laisser aller, de feignasser ou d'omnibuller, d'adopter un humour pythonesque face à cette faucuterie.

 

Sinon, plus sérieusement, préférez peut-être l'ouvrage de Jean Maillet, Langue française : arrêtez le massacre (L'Opportun)

Javed Akhtar est l’une des voix les plus justes de la poésie ourdoue contemporaine. Elle exprime une sensibilité postmoderne, radicalement différente des autres voix de sa génération. Il habite les deux mondes de la métaphysique et du concret avec la même facilité ; entre eux ni opposition ni hiérarchie. Exemple de l’hétérotopie qu’évoque Michel Foucault, sa [...]

How did English become the language of science?

How did English become the language of science? | Lexicool.com Web Review | Scoop.it
It's Nobel Prize season. While scientists throughout the world will be awarded this prestigious prize, there's a good chance all of their research was written up in English. Michael Gordin, a professor of the history of science at Princeton, wrote a new book, "Scientific Babel" that explores the intersection of the history of language and science.
