Daily Prompt: Morphing

 

 

Language evolves. The meaning of a word can shift over time as we use it differently — think of “cool,” “heavy,” or even “literally.”

Today, give a word an evolutionary push: give a common word a new meaning, explain it to us, and use it in the title of your post.

My best source to find an older word that has new meaning is to go to Facebook and check out my oldest granddaughter’s profile.  I am always hitting gold when it comes to a phrase or word being used that has new meaning.  Today’s word was Swaggin which means that she is heading or traveling…

When I was younger that was a description for a type of curtain.  It also meant to put swag in your step.  How interesting a word evolves as now they drop the g.

Guess it takes too much time to type in that last letter lol.

Here is a collection of tags with some letters left of of a few…

Will never forget when my grand daughter was amazed that I knew all the words to this song…lol

Here are what some other Daily Prompt Writers had to say on the subject:

  1. Ilya Fostiy. Food of the Gods | Bright Moments Catcher
  2. That Literacy Slush Pile… | EW Brown
  3. Daily Prompt: Morphing [people voice] | Nadeen’s Reading Corner

Since I am such an early bird with writing my prompt check back with Michele during the day to see more prompts.

What words do you find that have changed over the years?  Would love to hear so leave me a comment.
