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.

Now used to mean both “someone regarded or treated as unique or special” and “someone who is overly sensitive.”
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.
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
