Brainfood” Makes the Dictionary!

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 Millenniumâ„¢ 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!
