News from the Global Language Monitor estimates the millionth word in the English language is set to arrive on June 10th, 2009 at 10:22 am, British Summer Time. Buzz around the intarwebs and blogospheres is that the word “noob” will be that millionth word.

“The Global Language Monitor accepts words once they have been used 25,000 times by media outlets.”

Wow, there must be a lot of people using that word nowadays.  I wonder if gamers will stop using that word when it becomes official because their folks might start using it. Can you imagine this?
