Welcome to the Future, The Oxford Dictionary Adds New Words
Every year the Oxford Dictionary reviews words and phrases that have worked their way into common American speech and they have released their list of this year's additions.
They might strike you as amusing, creative or leave you wondering what's wrong with the world but they include "hot mess", "hangry","bruh", "wine o'clock" and "buttdial". A total of 22 words were added to the dictionary according to Mashable this morning.
ABCNews.com delved into how some of the new words came to be added to the dictionary by becoming so commonplace that they demand to be recognized. "Tweet" and "sharable" are two of the examples that they used. Today everyone universally accepts them. That wasn't always the case and the dictionary covers 1000 years of the English language.
