New year, new buzzword?

Hypothosense? Considurchase? Diffexperience? What does this all even mean?

New Zealand design agency DNA have looked into their proverbial crystal ball and come up with a definitively made up curated buzzword generator that keeps you up on the trends of 2017 before 2017 has even happened.

Called the 2017 Buzzword Predictor, the site offers up the ultimate catalogue of mish-mashed words the English language has always yearned for. Don't know what to call that friend who's never on time? Now there's a word for them. Need a new pithy insult? Look no further than here. Sick of watching pundits shout at each other on cable news? There's an apt description for that as well. 

The website gives you the option to add your own ‘in-use’ sentences for each word. And if you're good enough, you might even score yourself a luxury weekend getaway in the Wairarapa country.

Vocabulary has never been so economical.
