The planet Pluto has given birth to a new word: "to pluto" or "plutoed". The words were coined following the decision to demote Pluto from a planet to a dwarf planet. To "pluto", therefore, means to demote or devalue someone or something.
And linguists, lexicographers, editors, historians, etymologists, professors, writers and scholars belonging to the American Dialect Society named "to pluto/plutoed" Word of the Year for 2006. What a victory. Within four months, it has won recognition.
Although the word's connotation may be negative, Pluto will become more entrenched in the layman's mind. If, that is, the word "plutoed" finds common currency among speakers and writers. http://www.answers.com/topic/pluto
The American Dialect Society defined the verb "to pluto" as "to demote or devalue someone or something, as happened to the former planet Pluto when the General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union decided Pluto no longer met its definition of a planet." The society selected "plutoed" as its 2006 Word of the Year.
