How language changes and evolves fascinates me: my 9 yr old son & his friends refer to winding up or playing a trick on someone as trolling them even if it is not done online and actually occurs in the playground.

@Luke So it is here in the Basque Country (for your linguistical curiosity 😝). Mine is 10 years old.


@txikillana see that's amazing. I've been online since mid90s so think of trolling as something you only do to others online. All these kids have made it a general "thing".

@Luke And we all have forgotten the "real" trolls, I mean, the frightening ones who live in the forests 😝
