G-Word

6356931103_b3690a6b9f_b

G-Word | Colloquial | That bovine sanctus, that unmentionable 14 letter word; gentrification. It means almost nothing anymore and is thrown around by everyone with wild and reckless abandon. Much like the h-word (hipster). Practically a curse word.

Usage: “Don’t mention the g-word. I did, but I think I got away with it.”
