Have you come across a new word today/recently that you have only just learned, and never heard of before?

This thread is for new words that we learn; I know there might not be many, but it will be interesting to see how many new words we come across. :)

Ooh neat; that's a new one for me too, Abi!

Here is it's meaning:

Adjective: 'believing in or based on the principle that all people are equal and deserve equal rights and opportunities.'

Noun: 'a person who advocates or supports the principle of equality for all people.'

:D

Without looking it up, I believe it's something that's common and broadly useful... or something like that. *goes to look it up* Hah, whoops. It's "aiming for equal wealth, status, etc., for all people", apparently.

Aah, that's a lovely one! :D It would be funny if that was someone's nickname.

It's even interesting-er where it came from.... Did you look that up, Aris? It was because of the opened water butt on shipboard where the sailors would go to drink, and, of course, talk. So it's Navy slang.
