GLOBALBABBLE

Have you noticed that everything today is becoming "Global?"
What started as a buzzword in business and academia has now become
one of the KEYWORDS of the 90's.

In this globalized, global age, when everything has globated to the point where it is completely globulous, we obviously need some new vocabulary to describe the globish trends that are englobing us all. I have therefore generated this table of new words that capture the spirit of the times. - note that I have not trademarked or copyrighted these terms! I globalect them out into the globalent etherspace with my best wishes and a tender pat on the head. I have tried to stick to the shorter English endings - but the possibilities with other languages are quite globalicious.
