This week is yet another post showing that new words can come from anywhere.
My son is playing Bloons Tower Defense 4, a game I know nothing about. But he asked me what the word Glaive was (a Glaive Thrower is a tool in the game). Of course I didn't know. I thought it might have been made up, but it wasn't!
1. Glaive (Noun)
A European polearm weapon, consisting of a single-edged blade on the end of a pole. Wiki
2. Lisle (Noun)
Their legs were now swollen and hidden inside lisle stockings.
i) A fine, smooth, tightly twisted thread spun from long-stapled cotton.
ii) Fabric knitted of this thread, used especially for hosiery and underwear. Free Dictionary.
Interestingly this is named after Lisle (now Lille) the town in France where this type of thread was originally manufactured.
