Reviving this thread for the lead up into exams:
- Dan Andrews' "get on the beers" has become a bona fide meme (and a remix of the phrase has hit the Top 20 on iTunes)
- Another Dan Andrews quote "higher up on the shelf" also has become infamous

How would we describe these using metalanguage and other concepts learnt in English Language?
 
Also, feel free to add your own contemporary examples in this thread. :)

Cate Blanchett would rather be called an actor rather than an actress. She talks about the how the word "actress" has negative connotations and marginalises women.
Identity -> gender and also discussion of gendered language.

‘Burbing’ - The Age Article, October 2020. It means riding every single road, street and alley. It is a blend of the shortening of ‘suburb’, ‘burb’ and the end of ‘riding’. It is particularly appropriate during the coronavirus pandemic, where a 5km kilometre radius rule was implemented in metropolitan Melbourne, meaning that individuals could not go more than 5km outside their homes. This lexeme is of informal nature due to its similarity to spoken discourse.
