I’ve never cared much for the term “la-la-land” as it was ‘most always used in a derogatory manner. How dare you disparage the city I love in that manner. Well the Oxford Dictionary folks have taken it a step further and given the term credibility without noting in the definition its a “derogatory” noun. Their exact definition:
la-la land n. can refer either to Los Angeles (in which case its etymology is influenced by the common initialism for that city), or to a state of being out of touch with reality—and sometimes to both simultaneously.
What say you on this addition to the dictionary? More power to the haters or are you non plussed over the addition?
