The Oxford English Dictionary just updated it’s list of “real words”, adding 1800 new terms.  Among them: “auto-complete”, “brain candy,” “green fuel,” and “gender reassignment”.  Meanwhile the Scottish publishers of Collins Dictionary just announced that obsolete words would be omitted from future editions.  Terms being dumped include “rundlet” (a measurement equal to 15 gallons), “Kench” (to laugh loudly), and “brabble”, which is an argument over something unimportant.  

- When I heard they were dropping “rundlet” I couldn’t stop “Kenching!”.

- If they want to drop “obsolete” words they should have included “Balanced Budget”.
