The English language is constantly evolving. It's taken words from a variety of sources in the past, and sometimes slang terms get so popular that they make their way into the popular lexicon. English has one of the richest vocabularies of all the languages in the world (second only to Chinese), but there are still situations when it can't adequately describe something.
