We are quite familiar with this word, used by most of the young people and even I am guilty of using it for anything and anyone specially on social media.
According to the Oxford dictionary the definition of ‘awesome’ is:
Extremely impressive or daunting; inspiring awe:
‘the awesome power of the atomic bomb’
informal Extremely good; excellent:
‘the band is truly awesome!’
Earlier awesome was used for something which really inspired awe and was used very rarely. But these days it is used as a common word replacing ‘very nice’ or ‘very good’.
In my opinion there are two reasons for this; one, it sounds quite happening (believe me, even I feel it) and secondly, it adds a flavor of encouragement and exclamation to ‘very good’ or ‘very nice’.
Another variation which has come very recently related to ’awesome’ is
AWESOMITY – The highest state of awesome
Now that awesome is so much in use that another level of awesome is required to express awe. 😀
Affluential is a mix of Affluent and Influence and it used in case – Having both money and power or influence.
