  • Apple stops 'woozy face' emoji from appearing when 'stammer' is typed

    The comments appear full of Americans decrying political correctness run amok and baffled at why the neutral word “stammer” should be offensive. In British English, however, it’s the term for a stutter, which is a medical condition. (A similar disconnect occurs with the word “spastic” or the derived term “being a spaz”, which in the U.S. is unstigmatized slang for sudden outbursts or odd behavior, but in the U.K. is a derogatory way of talking about people with neurological conditions like cerebral palsy.)
