A fun article from the BBC highlights some of the latest entries to the 2.5 billion-word database of words in the Collins English Dictionary, 9th edition.
We were of course biased and happy to see “brainfood” as a newly minted word. According to Webster’s New Millennium™ Dictionary of English, they define “brain food”:
Part of Speech: n
Definition: any food that is considered to aid intelligence, memory, or creativity; by extension, any intellectual sustenance
We’d like to add SharpBrains to the list of brain foods! If you need some puzzles to pick up your mental metabolism, see how you do on these. Or maybe delve into some science and see if that expands your mental waistline a bit. Just save room for dessert!
