Dictionaries Also Changing The Definition Of Gullible

20130816-111447.jpg

As it turns out the word literally isn’t the only word changing its definition.

Dictionaries worldwide from Oxford, to Cambridge, to Merriam Webster, to Google, to Free Wood Post are literally changing the definition of “gullible”.

Gullible:
Syllabification: (gul·li·ble)
Pronunciation: /ˈgələbəl/adjective
easily persuaded to believe something; even a random website telling you the definition of a word changed.

We here at Free Wood Post literally can’t believe some people can be so gullible. We also can’t believe that changing the definition of a word is a valid substitute to literally mean something else, figuratively speaking, just to appease a culture too lazy to learn the proper definition of words.
