We’re all familiar with words that have evolved over time to develop new meanings. For example, organic used to refer to anything that grew; mad used to be an insult and gay meant happy! New products have also delivered language problems at times. I mean, after Richard Branson launched his brand of condoms, hanging out with a Mate could have meant something entirely different, while lapping at a pussy now means drinking mineral water! Slang can also cause confusion – who would have thought that moist was an insult?
So your challenge this week is to bring us words that have evolved or invent your own slang and give it a counter meaning!
Away you go!
