Complete the gaps in the text
Everyone knows the English language is
changing. Every __________ months, the
OED (Oxford English Dictionary)
____________ updates to its online
dictionary. One _________ update
_________ 900 new words, new ________,
or new meanings for ________ words. But
where do they all come from?
New words are ________ in many
different ways. We can make a new word
by _________ two words, like ________
(gastronomy + pub) or emoticon
(emotion + icon). Sometimes we put two
words together in a new way, for
example _______ _________ or _______
__________.
We also find that nouns can change into
________. Take the word text. Text was always
a noun (from about 1369, _______ to the OED),
but it is now very _______ as a verb, to text
somebody. Other new words already ________
but with a different ________. For example,
_______ was the noise that a bird makes, but
now we use it more often (as a verb or a noun)
for a message that people put on the ____ ____
site Twitter.
Another way in which we make new
words is by ‘______’ words from foreign
languages, like barista or latte
(__________ from Italian when coffee
bars became really ________ in the UK in
the 1990s).
 A lot of new words come from the
names of _________ or companies, for
example we play music on an ______
and we ________ information. We also
need more _______ words to describe
new technology or new ________: Wi-fi,
_________,and smartphone are some
_________ examples.
The ______ of new words is not a new
phenomenon. The word ______ (breakfast +
lunch) first appeared in 1896, newspaper
(news + paper) in 1667, and English
speakers started to use the word ______
(from French) in the late 19th century. The
______ now is how quickly new words and
expressions _______ the language and how
quickly we start to use and _________ them.
