Should these seven new words go in the dictionary?
Mar 06, 2019
Every month, we review some of the new words as submitted by you for consideration in the Macquarie Dictionary. We are looking for interesting, Australia-specific usage, but we love all new, and sometimes old but relatively unknown words. This month, we had a plethora of submissions but we've picked a few of the more interesting ones below.
So, have you ever had the pleasure of seeing a ghost apple? Do you know anyone who suffers from lane rage? What is your opinion on unschooling?
Let us know if you have any other suggestions. We are always happy to hear new words, no matter how big or small a usage they may have. And you can vote for some of these when we post them on our Instagram stories.
