Just came across this site on buzz words in English, short at the moment but presumably growing, and which might be of use to some of us translators living outside native Britain/US and feeling left behind by the language! Makes fun reading anyway.

Cheers

Love it Apr 8, 2010

Noni,
I just took a peek at two or three words... this list appears to be not only useful but also very enjoyable.

eg. "climate canary" - http://www.macmillandictionary.com/buzzword/entries/climate-canary.html
A brilliant synthesis of concepts!

Thanks
