Oxford English Dictionary Changes

Along with adding “retweeting,” “mankini,” and “jeggings,” (resending someone’s tweet, a Borat-style man’s bathing suit, and tight jeans-like women’s trousers), the folks at Oxford English have removed words so old-fashioned that they have no place in today’s jargon.  Imagine my shock when one of the phrases phrases you will no longer find in this paragon of lexicography is “cassette player.”  It wasn’t a phrase when I was born and won’t be one when I die.  Oh my!
