New words learned recently (I didn't encounter these before):

  • dumbphone: a (mobile) phone that is not a smartphone.

  • flexitarian: a "vegetarian with benefits"; someone who is usually vegetarian, but will occasionally eat meat.

My sister is probably a good example of the latter. She doesn't usually eat meat, and in fact doesn't like most of it, but she's not 100% vegetarian.

Would a "homophone" be a phone that likes other phones?

Pescatarian is an interesting one too (interesting enough that Firefox isn't registering it as a real word ;) ).

*noddles* Ah, interesting. I know that as "pesco-vegetarianism", but I always disliked that word because obviously, if you eat fish, you're not a vegetarian anymore (the same goes for "pollo-vegetarianism" (for those who eat chicken – and, presumably, other poultry – but not pork, beef etc.), too).
