Supplement your vocabulary

Think you have a pretty up-to-date vocabulary already? Think again. Check out WordSpy. WordSpy, according to the site, is a site that's ". . .devoted to lexpionage, the sleuthing of new words and phrases."

Paul McFedries, the site creator, searches for words that have appeared multiple numbers of times in printed media, the web, and other sources and then posts the definition(s) along with citations of the appearances.

One of the top words of 2003 was "metrosexual." Know what it means? No? Click here for the definition.
