I found the Word Spy Web site while researching the meaning of of "helicopter parent." One of the things I liked about Word Spy is that, besides giving a word's definition, it also gives you how/where the word has been used. When I looked up "helicopter parent," it listed the first time the term was used.
If you click on today's Word Spy link, you'll find definitions for frequency illusion, hobby hobo, wallet neuropathy, intexicated--and more.
Word Spy includes Alpha Archives, Recent Posts, as well as Twitter Updates. You can subscribe to Word Spy too--either by RSS Feed or daily e-mail. What better way to insure you are up-to-date on the latest words?
