Today’s a good day if you’re looking for new and unusual ways to express yourself. Answers.com is proud to announce we’ve got three new highly idiosyncratic dictionaries for your logophilic pleasure.
- Hinglish. This way of speaking is making its way across India and England. If you ever wondered if you should have a glassy with your machi-chips, or if there is a chor at the chowk, or you simply want to be pukka, this is the dictionary for you. See the complete Hinglish Dictionary.
- Neologisms. Brand-new words, hot off the Internet in many cases. This is not your grandfather’s OED. Check it.
- Rhyming Slang. This is one of the weirdest ever – and bawdy, to boot. A classic example of rhyming slang is using the phrase “trouble and strife” to mean “wife.” But this collection is updated and, frankly, hilarious. Start rhyming.
- And the last, but not the least (though the healthiest), the Nutrition Encyclopedia – how to know if you’re addicted to exercise, if your diet is a fad, or if you’ve got a bezoar.
And, on whole other note (ahem) we are also pleased to announce the publication of biographies of contemporary musicians and bands (1980s through 2010). From Abba to ZZ Top, through Madonna and Michael Jackson and thousands of other lesser-known entertainers, even one-hit wonders, these are truly endearing homages.
We aim to answer. Happy reading.
