Bree,
Yup. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Rox,
I imagine so; it's a regular "column" in the NY Times.

That one was brief and unusual, I thought.
New words don't seem to happen a lot -
although with the advent of the personal computer,
there are a BUNCH of (realtively, now)"new" ones.

"ShenZhen"...? Heck! if I know I'll see what I can find out.

MEANWHILE... how about this 'un ?

... and I'm stuck! witth "heck if I know!"...

"Translation: Afrikaans » English ShenZhen"

That ^ doesn't help very much, does it?

Oooh yoo-hoo, Eink... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Does ShenZhen mean "change again" or...
WHAT DOES IT MEAN? Hmm?
