Tip of the Day: Words do change meanings with generations

Words do change their meanings as each generation develops their own colloquial tongue. The most notable word-meaning change would be for gay. The word, in it’s original context, means happy, bright, excited. However, now many don’t use the word gay in that fashion anymore because of its other common meaning: homosexual. Other words that have taken on colloquial meanings include cool, chill and dank.
