The explosion of technology has created the fastest growing language in Europe, according to research published today.
Dubbed "Nerdic", this new way of communicating via technological terminology has developed separately to English and become the shared language of Europe, allowing people to communicate without geographical boundary.
According to the research by PIXmania.com, Nerdic may be more widely spoken than any other European dialect, with everyone from tech-toddlers to Wii-playing grannies embracing the geek speak of IT enthusiasts.
The researchers analysed the terminology associated with modern gadgetry and discovered that the three core elements required to define a new language: words, phrases and pronunciation are all present in Nerdic. So much so, that Nerdic is evolving faster than the English language, at a rate of more than 100 new words per year.

I am so much outside of this young world. Frankly speaking, I find it very difficult to cope up with these terms, due to my ignorance of these words. Even the shortened abbreviations are a minefield for me. I do hear some from my children, only to forget it next day.

Anyway, thanks for asking this qn. Just by going through the answers, I am able to mug up a few words. May be, I would use some of these words in some of my answers in the future

what's this world coming to anyway?
