    So don’t we get definitions? I, for example, want to know what “meh” means.

    “Birdhouse”? “Catnap”? Are these new definitions to old words I don’t know about, or were they very, veeerrrryy slow to adopt them? (I mean, “retweeting” and “sexting” can’t be more than ten ears old–maybe fifteen for “sexting”)
