Almost nobody says "YOLO" unironically anymore, but at least it's been reborn in the Oxford English Dictionary.
The "definitive record of the English language" added more than 500 words in its September update, ranging from the topical ("gender-fluid") to the casual ("vom", short for vomit) to the Roaldi Dahl-inspired ("scrumdiddlyumptious" and "human bean").
We broke down some of the highlights. <b>Here's the full list</b>.
The words that probably should have been added a while ago:
- T-bone (as a verb, like a car crash)
- Uh-oh (wait, this wasn't listed as a word?)
The painfully #Millennial and 'trying-to-be-cool' words:
- Mang (slang for "man")
- Moobs (as in man-boobs)
- Squee (a high-pitched squeal of joy)
- Unsub (short for "unsubscribe")
- Vom (short for "vomit")
- Yogalates (yoga + Pilates)
I'm at my oldest and angriest on the day they announce the new words in the Oxford English Dictionary.— Jason Isbell (@JasonIsbell) September 12, 2016
Some Twitter users weren't happy with the new words.
One user thought it was downright apocalyptic.
