Word of the Day: Youthquake
What I think it means: This is another weird one. I have no idea what it’s supposed to mean unless you take the two separate words mashed together at face value that it refers to a riot of youths, or some sort of youth disruption.
What it actually means: A shift in cultural norms influenced by the values, tastes, and mores of young people. Hunh. Well, I can see how it would equate to that. Though, I feel like a quake doesn’t quite equate to something as gradual as a shift.
