Words expunged from dictionary

We're losing some words from the dictionary.

Oxford University Press has removed words like "aisle", "bishop", "chapel", "empire" and "monarch" from its Junior Dictionary and replaced them with words like "blog", "broadband" and "celebrity"

From this report in the UK Telegraph.

Well at least it's only the Junior dictionary.

But what will kids walk down in the supermarket while nagging their parents to buy stuff you don't need? And will they play Age of Expunged III on their computers now? :O
