This time last year, terms like "pandemic" and "quarantine" were just entering the daily lexicon across America. Like so many other parts of life, how we talk and the words we use on a daily basis were rapidly and profoundly affected by the coronavirus crisis.

While some of the words associated with the disease and the resulting global response are new, others have been around for a while but are newly prominent or have revised definitions. Here's a closer look at some of the terms that are part of our "new normal" (something else everyone is now talking about all the time).
