Vocabulary created during World War I
Armistice Day is commemorated every year on 11 November to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France. The hostilities ceased on the Western Front of World War I, on 'the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month' of 1918. The date is a national holiday in France and was declared a national holiday in many Allied nations. In the UK, both Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday are commemorated formally but are not public holidays. In recent years Armistice Day has become increasingly recognised in the UK, and many people now attend the 11:00 a.m. ceremony at the Cenotaph in London – an event organised by Royal British Legion, a British charity dedicated to perpetuating the memory of those who served in the First World War and veterans of all subsequent wars involving British and Commonwealth troops. Did you know that World War I is responsible for introducing a number of new words into the English language?
