Posted on: 07-06-2009 , 04:: | DY365 Bureau

The English Language will cross the 1,000,000 word threshold on June 10, 2009 at 10:22 am Stratford-Upon-Avon time, the Global Language Monitor, an Austin, Texas-based firm said.

The Indian entries include 'Cuddies', a word used to refer to ladies' underwear or panties, 'Jai Ho!, Indian music maestro's AR Rahman's globally successful title track from from the Academy Award winning, 'Slumdog Millionaire' as well as the word 'Slumdog'.

"The Million Word milestone brings to notice the coming of age of English as the first, truly global Language," said Paul JJ Payack, president and chief word analyst of the Global Language Monitor.

"Due to the global extent of the English language, the Millionth Word is as likely to appear from India, China, or East Los Angeles as it is to emerge from Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare's home town," said the firm's website.
