I have had for a while the Oxford Dictionary of new words - 'the intriguing srtories behind 2000 new words in the news'. I have only just got around to opening it and taking it seriously. I've just finished the letter 'A' so you can expect a few 'A' words in the near future. My first is Aga saga.
An aga saga is a form of popular novel typically set in a semi-rural location and concerning the domestic and emotional lives of middle-class characters. In some contexts, Ága saga is now synonymous with a sanitized and prettified picture of rural life.
Joanna Trollope is said to be the author of some typical aga sagas.
