Cute list! Quite surprised that those words were used so long ago. Wonder if “neologism” is a new word. :) Just started following scoop board maintained by Rodolfo Maslias. I've always enjoyed word study. But there is an ulterior motive. Want to beat my significant other at Scrabble! One of these days I'm gonna win! :)

Charles Tiayon's curator insight, July 23, 8:07 PM

I used to keep a small dictionary in my bedside table, another in the end table near the couch, one on my home office desk and another on my desk at work. I’m rather particular about looking up words I don’t know, and I always wanted a dictionary within reach. When I was an undergraduate geology major, I had a specialized geology dictionary that I kept near my desk to help me understand words in my textbooks and scholarly articles that weren’t included in standard dictionaries.

Fast forward to 2014 and three of these dictionaries are gone, the fourth (in my office at work) is rarely used, and the geology dictionary is kept primarily for nostalgia. Several tools have replaced the standard dictionary:

  • When I’m using my Nook eReader, I can simple select a word to view a definition.
  • When I’m reading a book, my phone is normally in reach for quick lookups.
  • When I’m working, it’s easier to look up a word online.
  • Even when I need to go in depth with a word and its origins, I can turn to the online Oxford English Dictionary.

If you haven’t used it before, Google’s define feature is pretty handy. Just type in

define: word

While this feature works well for everyday difficult words, it is less successful for technical scientific language – those words for which my specialized geology dictionary was so handy. Luckily, we live in an age of crowd sourced knowledge.  While Google’s definition of foliation might not work from a geologic perspective, Wikipedia comes to the rescue with an entry about Foliation (geology). While Wikipedia is certainly not an dictionary, it is a great source for defining technical and scientific terms.
