Which word was invented in year of your birth?
The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) has created an online 'birthday word' generator where people can find out which word came into use in the year they were born. Any birth year from 1900 to 2004 can be searched, and the tool generates the word that had the first known usage in that year. The tool also gives quotations of when the word first appeared.
