We are ALL English Language Learners as our language is constantly invented and reinvented.

 

Everything we learn NEW has its own vocabulary that we need to know 

 

GOLF is a new language;

BIOLOGY is a new language;

PHYSICS is a new language; 

DANCE is a new language. 

 

 

 

 

Smartphone became a prominent word beginning in 1997 AND entered the dictionary:

 

  1. mobile phone that performs many of the functions of a computer, typically having a touchscreen interface, internet access, and an operating system capable of running downloaded applications.
