Ivanka Trump launches 'Complicit' a word of the year:

Dictionary.com is a web portal dedicated to English language. Every day they come up with a word of the day. This website closely work with the development of English language and current developments in writing in press, periodicals, books and other material.

Yesterday they have declared 'complicit' as its word of the year.

Complicit: The particular word is used by Ivanka Trump for the fragrance she launched. Scarlett Johansson in a glittery gold dress launched it. The other developments like, Russian election influence, the ever-widening sexual harassment scandal, mass shootings and the opioid epidemic increased the use of the word "complicit”. Dictionary.com then chosen it the word of the year for 2017.

Lexicographer Jane Solomon told revels the meaning, "This year a conversation that keeps on surfacing is what exactly it means to be complicit," she further added, “Complicit has sprung up in conversations about those who speak out against powerful figures in institutions, and those who stay silent."

March 12. "Saturday Night Live" launched the sketch starring Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka Trump in a glittery gold dress peddling a fragrance called "Complicit" as it reveals "She's beautiful, she's powerful, she's complicit."

I remember a quote of David Crystal, “A feature of English that makes it different compared with all other languages is its global spread” I remember he used it in the preface of his book, ‘‘Stories of English’ David Crystal. He goes further and explains how English is spread across the globe and how it’s form, syntax is different from each other. Sir David Crystal is lexicographer of Cambridge encyclopedia and is the only senior most authority alive today.

I wonder if other languages also practice the same thing, they will get enriched and will remain in use for more years. Else the touch screen reality and ever changing diction will make any established language irrelevant within 10 years.

Surprisingly on April 5, Ivanka, Solomon said. It was the day after she appeared on "CBS This Morning" and told Gayle King, among other things: "I don't know what it means to be complicit."

The other development on Oct. 24, Arizona Republican Jeff Flake harshly criticizing President Donald Trump and urging other members of the party not to stand silently with the president. He used 'complicit' word as follow.

"I have children and grandchildren to answer to, and so, Mr. President, I will not be complicit," Flake said.

I soon will be writing on the words which have become absolute in 2017. As this year has been a year of heavy political turmoil and political upheaval like never before. This year also is the year when many writers surfaced their talent in writing in revival style. The movies, music, dance, drama, public relations, advertising and political arena went on revivalism raga.

As fashion changes every season and so do the language. Let us get updated with in vogue new terminologies.

Out-Of-Use Words In 2017

As we are approaching the fag-end of the year 2017, it is time to take a look back at language.

Every year when we read news paper new words are added and some old words are removed from use.

The devout news paper readers observe it with relish. They hone their language with razor sharp usage of words. They are the people who win the hearts during public speaking.

We can call them the lost words in English during year 2017

1. Ambodexter, n: One who takes bribes from both sides

2. Betrump, v: To deceive, cheat; to elude: This particular word is used this year by only The Asian Age in India and Spectator in west. This is used for the news from US and Latin US.

3. Coney-catch, v: To swindle, cheat, deceive

4. Hugger-mugger, n, adj, and adv: Concealment, secrecy; clandestinely

5. Nickum, n: A cheating or dishonest person

6. Quacksalver, n: A person who dishonestly claims knowledge of medicine

7. Rouker, n: A person who whispers or spreads rumors, this particular word is used this year the most acclaimed daily The Asian Age and spectator in west.

8. Man-millinery, adj: Suggestive of male vanity or pomposity

9. Parget, v: To daub the face or body with powder or paint

10. Snout-fair, adj: Fair-faced, comely, handsome

11. Slug-a-bed, n: One who lies long in bed through laziness

12. Losenger, n: A false flatterer, a lying rascal, a deceiver

13. Momist, n: A person who habitually finds fault; a harsh critic,

14. Peacockize, v: To pose or strut ostentatiously

15. Percher, n: An ambitious or self-assertive person

16. Rouzy-bouzy, adj: Boisterously drunk

17. Ruff, v: To swagger, bluster, domineer.

18. Sillytonian, n: A silly or gullible person

19. Wlonk, adj + n: Proud, haughty; splendid

20. Fumish, adj: Hot-tempered, irascible, passionate

21. Awhape, v: To amaze, stupefy with fear

22. Hugge, v: To shake with fear or with cold

23. Merry-go-sorry, n: A mixture of joy and sorrow

24. Stomaching, adj: Given to cherish anger or resentment

25. Swerk, v: To become dark or gloomy

26. Teen, v: To vex, irritate, annoy, anger

27. Tremblable, adj: Causing dread or horror

28. Wasteheart, int: Used to express grief, pity, regret

29. Dowsabel, n: Sweetheart, ‘lady-love’

30. Ear-rent, n: Figurative cost of listening to trivial talk

Unfamiliar they may be now but at least one could be returning to modern use as part of a campaign to highlight how long-lost words are still relevant today.

These 30 words are selected by language experts at the University of York as being ripe for revival. Senior Lecturer Dominic Watt and his research team spent three months scouring historic texts and etymological dictionaries to create the list.

They are grouped into themes which Dr Watt in Forensic Speech Science at the University of York, he undertakes forensic phonetic casework on a part-time basis.  Dr Watt co-designed and delivers the MSc in Forensic Speech Science at York, the only course of its kind.  He has degrees in linguistics and phonetics from the Universities of Edinburgh and Newcastle, and has held teaching and research positions in the speech sciences at institutions throughout the UK and in Germany.

I personally admire Dr Watt as a Professor of Mass Communication. I appreciate this passion and study in the language domain. I shoulder his view on its importance in modern life: post-truth (deception), appearance, personality, behavior, and emotions.

A few simple procedures to follow to improve your English:

1. Reading simple children's storybooks to start off with understanding word placement and sentence construction.

2. Write out short essays to judge your grip on the language.

3. Copy down paragraphs from newspaper articles to understand advanced word placement and sentence construction.

4. Make a note of words in the copied paragraphs and find their meanings and how these words are used in a sentence.Online dictionaries or generic over the counter dictionaries should help this process.

5. Use a thesaurus to find out words that have a similar meaning to the words you just found the meanings to using a dictionary.

6. Readout sentences aloud. The paragraph which you copied from newspapers can be used for this process. You can also select paragraphs from magazines, textbooks and other sources of English prose.

7. Use an online dictionary to find out how words are pronounced.

8. Watch the news from both national and international channels. Do note that you do not have to pay attention to the content of the news but to the manner in which words are pronounced and the style of speaking English. You will notice that there are two dominant methods of speaking English, the British accent and the American accent, there are other accents (for example English with an influence of Arabic, or French or Russian in various news channels).

9. Write out more complex essays based on an article that you have read in the newspaper or magazine or from any other source of prose.

10. Read, copy and find the meaning of words of articles found in the Editorial Section of newspapers as senior journalists write the articles on this page. The end result of these procedures will leave you with a better grip on the English language both written and spoken.

Hello Kiran, Isn't it obvious that Creative Writing can be in any language and not necessarily English?

Hello Kiran, Isn't it obvious that Creative Writing can be in any language and not necessarily English? If it's not English, then you should only be creative enough and the translation part can be taken care by someone else. If it's English, according to me, to be creative you don't need to have outstanding written skills, but you just need to be good enough. Sometimes, simple English can make an article awesome. Just know who your target audience is/are and prepare yourself accordingly. Practice can always help in improving yourself. Thanks! read less
