A New Verb is Born — Outgreen
Cross posted from the Biodiversivist Blog
to outgreen (third-person singular simple present outgreens, present participle outgreening, simple past and past participle outgreened)
1. (transitive) To surpass in environmental activism or consciousness
I submitted this word to Wictionary after writing a review of Tom Friedman’s book Hot, Flat, and Crowded where he gave the credit for it to a friend of his during breakfast.
It took the Wiktionary police a while to decide that it meets their criteria for a new word.
I may have it carved on my tombstone.
