Off late, I have been hearing this word “humongous” quite often in conversations and whatever I read, but had no clue what it meant. Guess my vocabulary must be seriously outdated.
Anyway, it reminded me of another term that was quite a craze a few years back – “Paradigm Shift” . This was the favorite corporate jargon at that time and I wonder whether half of them actually knew what it meant. There was a hilarious reference to this by Anitha Nair in one of her articles in Sunday Express. Not exactly the same words, but the gist is here – “These days everyone is talking about this new thing called Paradigm. I have never been able to understand what it is, but one thing I know- it is always shifting”
(P.S. – If anyone is as ignorant as I am, humongous means “extremely large”, “Huge “, “perhaps alteration of huge + monstrous” – courtesy Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary)
