Love for words

If you could add one new word to the english language (or any other language), what would it be?

  • Apr 23 2012: 'SHEH', pronoun - the combination of both 'he' and 'she'

    It would be very useful in the context when we mean both sexes instead of 'he/she' or 's/he'
    It can be also used to denote an undivided being, as a symbol.
    'Sheh's' - a form of possessive case.

    Or 'Hesh' 'Hesh's', I am not a feminist :)

    Apr 21 2012: Tautology but I fear it would be redundant. Oh wait that is already a word. Ok I'm kind of borrowing this one but I like it: some one who tries to go in an automatic out door at a supermarket is called a DORK.
