* The episode "Wordplay" of ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'' has an interesting twist on this trope, where within a day all words suddenly change their meaning, leaving the main character with a garbled vocabulary, invoking this trope with every word.

* ''Series/HellOnWheels'': Brigham Young uses the term "Jack Mormon" in reference to Eva, who says she'd been raised Mormon but no longer practices the religion. However, this is it's modern meaning (an inactive or lapsed Mormon), while in the 1800s the term means someone friendly towards Mormons or Mormonism.

'''Hugh:''' People think you mean homosexual.\\
'''Stephen:''' Right! And there's another one.\\
'''Hugh:''' Yeah.\\
'''Stephen:''' When was the last time you could use the word homosexual in its proper context?\\
'''Hugh:''' Right, and it's such a lovely word.\\
'''Stephen:''' Oh, it's one of the great words.\\
'''Hugh:''' "My word, Jane," I used to say to my wife, "the garden's looking very homosexual this morning."
