word trends

The concept is not new, but the first time I had heard the word “staycation” was last month. One of my sisters brought up the word and I think the other confirmed that it was indeed in the latest edition of Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary.

I’m skeptical about how much staying power this word may have, but a glance at the newly added words does reveal some interesting trends. I wonder what words have fallen out of favor and have been removed.
