Old Words

Hi Everyone!

Did you know old words are updated with new meanings?
Well if you didn’t here are a couple that have new meanings.

Snowflake:
Now used to mean both “someone regarded or treated as unique or special” and “someone who is overly sensitive.”
Purple:
Extending the blending of red and blue to the metaphorical level, purple can now refer to geographical areas where voters are split between Democrats and Republicans.
Peak:
Metaphorically extended to mean “being at the height of popularity, use, or attention,” as in “peak television” (or maybe “peak word nerd”).

Have a great day! Hope
