Stresscalation?

Posted by languageandgrammar on April 17, 2011

As you know, we here at Everything Language and Grammar are all for making up words whenever it’s convenient because language changes, and since it does, we should all have the authority to change it ourselves.

All right, before you think we’ve gone all descriptivist on you, I’ll stop the sarcasm and give you today’s made-up word: stresscalation.

I guess it means escalation of stress, but some people are too busy and stressed to say all of that, so they’ve shortened it to one, easy-to-use non-word.
