The rise of COVID ‘snowclones’ – the mother of all linguistic phrases4

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen an explosion of new words and phrases in English (for example, covidiot) and other languages Coronaspeck in German to describe lockdown weight gain) that have helped us make sense of a period defined by social confusion and constant change, as well as global stagnation.

My 2 cents opinion: The corona crisis has given way to a novel twist on old expressions.

Mi opinión: Nada como la tragedia para despertar la creatividad de los seres humanos.
