Synopsis: THAT SHOULD BE A WORD: A LANGUAGE LOVER'S GUIDE TO CHOREGASMS, POVERTUNITY, BRATRING, AND OTHER MUCH-NEEDE TERMS FOR THE MODERN WORLD

Finally there's a word for it: "Fidgital"--excessively checking one's devices. "Martyrmony"--staying married out of duty. Author of the highly popular "That Should Be a Word" feature in the "New York Times Magazine," Lizzie Skurnick delights word lovers with razor-sharp social commentary delivered via clever neologisms. "That Should Be a Word "is a compendium of 244 of Skurnick's wittiest wordplays--more than half of them new--arranged in ingenious diagrams detailing their interrelationships. Complete with definitions, ? pronunciations, usage examples, and ?illustrations, "That Should Be a Word" ?features words on our obsession with ?food: "carbiter"--one who asserts that? someone else cannot be hungry. On? social media, like "twiticule"--to mock? someone in 140 characters. On the ?modern family, like "brattle"--to discuss one's children at great length, which leads to words like "spamily"--Facebook or Twitter updates about kids--and "spawntourage"--a group of approaching strollers. From highlighting the profound financial anxiety of a post-recession society ("bangst") to mocking the hyper-vain celebrity circle that abstains from anything? of import ("celebracy"), "That Should Be a Word" delves deep into all the most humorous, and maddening, aspects of life in the 21st century.
