As a short follow-up on memorable moments in language acquisition, I’ve noticed that sometimes you learn a new word and suddenly you hear it all around you.

What words have you learned recently that you can’t imagine getting by without once you’ve learned it?
A commenter left this interesting link about the Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon. Now lets see if I hear people talking about this phenomenon all the time. 🙂
