Nine Words You Might Think Came from Science…

I have a guest post over at OUP Blog: Nine Words You Might Think Came from Science but Which Are Really from Science Fiction. In the comments, someone pointed out that one of my words is really from science after all. This is what happens when you try to assert firstness about things, but it was fun drawing up the list anyway.

    Just a mention that your blog post got a writeup in actual dead tree format, in the Telegraph’s Saturday review section a couple of weeks ago. Online here:

    It looks as though the author of this piece also used the comments on the blog for other material for the article (thagomizer, quark)
