It will Wii-define the American lexicon
Every year new words are added to the American lexicon. Most recent additions have centered around new technology. The word ipod is a relatively new addition to the language. Today that word is easily recognizable. This year Nintendo released its new console. The “Wii” (pronounced: Wee), as it is called was originally dubbed “Revolution”, but later changed to a strange little word that has no previous definition in English.
Nintendo claimed that revolution was too long and hard to pronounce in some languages, so they opted for the simplicity of Wii, which was not without controversy.
