It’s always fascinating to be aware of when a word is invented. We google and tweeet things; we are pinners. Sometimes, it’s not a new word, but a change in what is politically correct. Often, it is subtle and we don’t realize the change in the moment. For example, when did a wreck become an accident? “Wreck,” “crash,” nope, now it’s an “accident” on the highway. I guess because the latter sounds less intentional?

Car AccidentCar wreck or car accident? Any other words you now realize have changed over the years?
