A New Word in the Oxford English Dictionary

AskOxford: New Words: "• noun an animal said to exist in parts of Central America, where it supposedly attacks animals, especially goats.
— origin Spanish, literally ‘goatsucker’, from chupar ‘to suck’ cabra ‘goat’.

I suspect that Jayme Blaschke is responsible for this addition. You can see the others if you click the link above.

    I like "chugger", to which we could add the prefix "tele" to identify those excluded from the "no call" registry.
