I was delighted to learn this week that you can make up a new definition for a word and all of a sudden the dictionary will change it for you.
It was of course the Workplace Minister Bill Shorten who explained on the ABC show Q&A that “misogyny” didn’t mean what the dictionary said it did but in fact what the Prime Minister said it did and so a couple of days later the chastened editors of Macquarie Dictionary said they would change the definition accordingly.
This was a tremendously liberating development and so I now have for the dictionary some other words that urgently need redefining.
