    Hmm - on further investigation, all the words in my previous post turn out to be of much earlier (and in one case later) origin. So, although fun, this site may not be entirely accurate.

    Very interesting. Lots of words I would have guessed were more "modern" than the year of my birth.

    Ableism, camcorder, spreadsheet, technobabble... Mine is filled with technology ones or science-y ones. Boring!

    More interestingly, my husband's year contains such gems as single-malt, reggae and yo.
