18.02.03 - 09.22Don't misunderestimate Bushism en Dot-communism

Leuk, de jaarlijkse nieuwe woorden zijn weer bekend en in Amerika blijkt het nieuwe taalgebruik anno 2003 voornamelijk bepaald te zijn door het middelmatige taalgebruik van de Mister President himself.

Enkele voorbeelden:

misunderestimate (to seriously underestimate),
embetter (to make emotionally better -- the opposite of embitter),
resignate (as in "They said this issue wouldn't resignate with the people")
and foreign-handed (as in "I have a foreign-handed foreign policy")

Een leuke is: dot-communism (the conviction that everything on the Web should be free or, at least, paid for by someone else.)
