Are green terms being added to dictionaries?

    Yes they most certainly are! In 2006, the term “carbon neutral” was the Oxford American Dictionary word of the year! Other 2006 additions include green audit, carbon footprint, and carbon trading. In 2008, the Oxford English Dictionary word of the year was hypermiling, which is defined as “attempt to maximize gas mileage by making fuel-conserving adjustments to one’s car and one’s driving techniques”. Basically, green terms are being added to dictionaries every year and in increasing amounts.
