World famous talk show host, Oprah Winfrey now has a word that she created, added to the English dictionary. The word is “Aha moment” which is defined thus,”a moment of sudden realization, inspiration, insight, recognition, or comprehension.”
In a video segment for Merriam-Webster, Oprah added her own insight to the term, saying, “I always love those moments when I sit down to talk to somebody and they say something that makes me look at life or a situation in a completely different way. And I say, ‘Aha! I get it!’ Light bulb! Bing, bing, bing moment. And the little hairs on your arm stand up. That is an aha moment.”
Well the people at Mariam Webster must have had their own ‘aha moment’. Who better to add a word to the English dictionary, than the billionaire queen of talk shows herself.
