It Came From the Internet

By Brett Mejia ’13

I often find the need for new words because my 7,000 word vocabulary gets repeated every day and I’m tired of not having some new and exciting things to say.

In search of some new words I stumbled upon

The website’s home page entices the user with a whole page covered in words each of which are endangered of going extinct as an official term.

When at the home page, the user is provided with a box that will hover over a group of words that they can select.

Once a word is selected another box will appear with the definition and a sentence that uses the selected word.

The user will be prompted with a message that asks you if you want to adopt the selected word.

To adopt the word the user will need to register to so that a certificate can be sent to their e-mail explaining the importance of using the word.

When one goes to Google Translator and sets the languages to translate German to German and types in “pv zk pv pv zk pv zk kz zk pv pv pv zk pv zk zk pzk pzk pvzkpkzvpvzk kkkkkk bsch” an interesting sound is made.

The sound can be recognized as beat boxing. explains how a man by the name of Redditor Harrichr figured out through experimentation to create a beat box tune using Google Translator.

The website also contains the different words to type into the translator that will allow various instruments to play such as a suspended cymbal and bass.

Words with Friends and Word Feud

Android and iPhone/iPod touch users should have fun with two interesting and challenging games.

The games are called Words with Friends and Word Feud.

Words with Friends is for the iPhone/ iPod touch platform and can be downloaded from the App store.

Word Feud is for the Android platform and can be downloaded from the Android marketplace.

Both games’ objective is to gather friends and family from around the country and bring them together to play a Scrabble-like competition right on an electronic device.

The players take turns and try and create as many words as they can with the letters that they are provided with. Gamers can also play against random opponents.

Both games allow up to 20-30 games to be played simultaneously which allows one to play with a variety of people at one time.
