    The new edition of this popular dictionary, now available in paperback, tells the story of around 2,000 words and phrases prominent in the media or the public eye in the '80s and '90s. Covering words from all around the English-speaking world, it includes entries on Aga saga, Archie, Britpop, car bra, ecological footprint, feminazi, Japanimation, loved-up, mosh, Olestra, pink pound, waitron, youthism, and zaitech.

    The articles provide intriguing explanations of the meaning and origin of each expression and the story behind it, with a wide range of illuminating quotations. The date of the first recorded usage of each word is given, along with any new derivatives it has generated. Graphic icons show the areas of life in which each word is used, highlighting words, for example, from sport, lifestyle and leisure, technology, computing, and people and society.

    Synopsis
    This revised edition presents Oxford's latest research into new words in the language, telling the story of around 2000 words and phrases prominent in the media or the public eye in the 1980s and 90s. Covering words from all around the English-speaking world, it includes articles on Aga saga, Archie, Britpop, car bra, ecological footprint, feminazi, Japanimation, loved-up, mosh, Olestra, pink pound, waitron, youthism and zaitech. Each article explains the meaning of the word and uncovers the history behind its origin and use. The date of the earliest recorded usage of each word is given, along with any new derivatives it has generated. About 70 per cent of the articles are new to this edition, and the rest are revised or newly-written articles for words in the first edition which are still sufficiently prominent to warrant attention or which have acquired a new focus in recent years. Graphic icons are used throughout the text to show the areas of life in which each word is used, with icons ranging from business, the environment, health and computing to popular culture, people and society, leisure and lifestyle, and sport.
