"It is unlikely, however, that simples will make it into the Oxford dictionary, she added, whereas words such as staycation could eventually warrant a place because they are used with such frequency."

Constantly + evolving + language.

The latest ad explaining how the Meerkats got to Russia confirms that these ads will be remembered for decades, they must be one of the most successful ad ideas ever.

We are victory!

“Simples” has been recognise as important English word and legitimal Scrabble entry! I read in Sun Newspaper, that Susie Dent - Oxford University Press Word Queen - has said it is her favourite word of year. It is definitely better than “Jeggings”, which I think is some type of fruit.
She correctly define “simples” as mean “something is very easy to achieve”. Example sentence: “I beat Sergei at Scrabble today and made him go in sulk for an hour – simples!” Look for it in your future editions of the Dictionary of Oxford English!

I must thank you all for signing petition and lobbying your local Language Tsar. It is make my fur quiver with gratefulness.

Yours victoriously,
