New entries in the latest edition of the Rizzoli Larousse Dizionario della Lingua Italiana provide an interesting insight into the national zeitgeist. They include antiglobal, someone who opposes globalisation, burqa, the enveloping cloak prescribed for women under Islamic law in some countries, and girotondino, someone who participates in a ring-a-roses around political or institutional seats of power during protests. Other new entries are symptoms of changing technology and leisure habits, including autoricaricabile, which describes a telephone card that can be recharged during use, and last minute, a travel offer that is cheap because it is available shortly before it must be taken up. Dizionario della Lingua Italiana by Francesco Sabatini and Vittorio Coletti is published by Rizzoli Larousse.
