Oxford Dictionaries Online published a list of the new word submissions for 2013. On the list, is Miley Cyrus’s favourite new dance move ‘twerk’, phone portrait photos known as ’selfless’, and the act of disconnecting, known as ‘digital detox’.
The online version of The Oxford English Dictionary adds approximately a thousand words each year, often entering terms that have been directly pulled from pop culture. The words are not always a product of the current year. The term ‘twerk’ has actually been a part of hip hop culture for close to 20 years. It only gained recognition this year as a popular dance move, thanks to Miley.
More words then ever have a strong connection to social media and our digital environment. As a technology evolves, so does our language.
The mattress world is no different. Simmons Beautyrest mattresses are evolving and with their evolution come a new language for describing the elements and components of mattress design.
Here are three terms ushered in by Beautyrest’s Recharge Mattress Technology:
1. Pocket Coil
- An individual coil support system that independently adjusts to the weight and contour of your body.
2. AirCool Memory Foam
- A layer of foam that provides pressure relief and temperature control.
3. TruTemp Gel
- Absorbs and releases excess warmth to maintain a cool consistent sleeping temperature.
Now that your vocabulary has increased, consider using it with your next purchase of a Beautyrest mattress Vancouver residents can purchase these modern miracle machines at Simmons Mattress Gallery on Broadway and Oak Street.
