Words that were “born” the same year as you!

This is cool! Try it for your birth-year! — There’s a tool on Merriam-Webster’s website that lets you see what WORDS were born the same year that you were.

So if you were born in 1988, you’ll find out that some of the words born that year are: Channel surfing . . . e-book . . . emo . . . f-bomb . . . gangsta  . . . hyperlink . . . mosh pit . . . road rage . . . and unibrow.

The word “cell phone” was created the year I was born, and that makes me feel OLD!!
