Neologisms (new words), 2014 onwards

GPB has for a long time had a tradition of collecting new words, or neologisms. Whilst we have fun and a bit of a laugh doing so, it was not until the end of 2014 that we decided we should start to collate and publish them. So, with a little fanfare (“tra-la”), here is our latest list, […]
