Word of the day

John Butera has supplied this word - mumpreneurs - "with more and more Australian women trying to juggle the role of mum and managing director, the phrase Mumpreneur has been coined for all those mothers who've started a business from home." While the Swinburne catalogue has one reference, Google has 1260 of them, and when we solve a simple linguistic puzzle, we find that Google has over 50,000 mompreneurs - clearly Australia (and New Zealand) are not the true home of these enterprising mothers. And what conclusions do we draw about the library catalogue?

There are dadpreneurs too (but not as many it seems, and not one in our catalogue).
