You Won’t Believe The New Words Added To The Oxford Dictionary
This is so not weak sauce
Oxford Dictionaries have announced its latest additions and we literally can’t even deal right now!
Apparently they focused on adding the things that were trending over the last couple of months, like Internet comments, gender identity, and of course food/drinking related words.
The newly added words have left everyone talking and we can see why!
Here are some of our faves
Beer o’clock (noun): an appropriate time of day for starting to drink beer
Brain fart (noun): a temporary mental lapse or failure to reason correctly
Butt dial (verb): inadvertently call (someone) on a mobile phone in one’s rear trouser pocket
Cakeage (noun): a charge made by a restaurant for serving a cake they have not supplied themselves
Fat-shame (verb): cause (someone judged to be fat or overweight) to feel humiliated by making mocking or critical comments about their size
Fur baby (noun): a person’s dog, cat, or other furry pet animal
Mic drop (noun): an instance of deliberately dropping or tossing aside one’s microphone at the end of a performance or speech one considers to have been particularly impressive
Rando (noun): a person one does now know, especially one regarded as odd, suspicious, or engaging in socially inappropriate behaviour
Redditor (noun): a registered user of the website Reddit
Weak sauce (noun): something that is of a poor or disappointing standard or quality
Wine o’clock (noun): an appropriate time of day for starting to drink wine
What a time to be alive!
