Oxford English Dictionary http://kmuw.org en OnWords: Momentum http://kmuw.org/post/onwords-momentum <p>“Momentum” is a word that we don’t usually think of as having a technical origin, even though we hear it used a lot by reporters during election season. A typical use would be something like “Senator Belfry’s campaign seems to have gained momentum following his recent speech to the Bloom County Chamber of Commerce.” There seems to be nothing technical about that.</p> Tue, 29 Jan 2013 18:30:00 +0000 Lael Ewy 11728 at http://kmuw.org OnWords: Momentum
