Great link, Luisa! Jul 7, 2008

This is really interesting and I'm curious to see how some of these will be translated.

I could not, however, find a word I had to translate a couple of weeks ago: coolhunter (cazador de tendencias).

Thank you for posting the link.

....given that English adds some 3000-4000 new words every year (!).
