Every few months, the people responsible for new entries to the Oxford English Dictionary sit down with experts to determine what new words should be added.

The words chosen are usually based on their popularity. The more we use them, the more likely they’ll get picked. Recently, over 1,000 new words have been added to the dictionary and some existing words even received new definitions!

So check out some of the recent changes that’s been made to the English dictionary that stood out the most;


1 . Hangry, adj.

Definition: Bad-tempered or irritable as a result of hunger

We all have that friend who turns into the Hulk when he/she is hungry, don’t we?

3. Tomoz, adv.

4. Snowflake, n.

Newly-added definition: An overly sensitive or easily offended person, or one who believes they are entitled to special treatment on account of their supposedly unique characteristics

This entry is probably thanks to the kids who whine about anything and everything these days…sigh


5. Ransomware, n.

Definition: A type of malicious software designed to block access to a computer system until a sum of money is paid

We’re guessing this word made the cut thanks to the frequent cyber attacks courtesy of hackers and viruses recently.


6. Swag, n.

Newly-added definition: Bold self-assurance of style or manner

Millennials or Beliebers are definitely no strangers to this word. It is believed that those who possess swag walk and talk with an extremely confident attitude.

7. Mansplainer, n.

Definition: A man who explains (something) to someone, typically a woman, in a manner regarded as condescending or patronising
