New Olympia words, none of which exist, according to our copy of the American Heritage Dictionary:
-“Defund,” which recently appeared in a press release from Citizens for Parks and Recreation. The group gets extra points, however, for managing to use the word as both a verb (“to defund”) and a noun (“a defunding”).
-“Disinvest,” used by a WSU official unhappy with the amount of money the state is putting into higher education.
-and “externships”, which the state Attorney General’s office offers, apparently in lieu of internships.
