Berlitz Survey

Berlitz Japan is collecting suggestions of Japanese words that seem to originate from English but lost or changed their meaning in the transition. Examples would include "consent" for power socket or "smart" meaning to be slim. 100 people will receive a set of cards based on "WordMaster", the company's free e-mail service that focuses on such words. You can submit your suggestion (in Japanese only, it seems) at the Berlitz Web site.
