Slay, smackdown, hangry and struggle bus are among the 300 new words and definitions recently added to Dictionary.com's online database.

The new words stem from the headlines as well as recent trends their lexicographers found in art, food, fashion and pop culture in general. 

"Our users turn to us to define the words they see, hear, and read and in today’s highly politicized world, we play a necessary role in helping users dissect the meaning of words heard in this period of political discourse,” Liz McMillan, CEO of Dictionary.com, said in a statement.

Luckily, Dictionary.com already tweeted a lot of these new words with GIFs that really encapsulate each word's meaning. Take a look at some of the new words below: 

Hangry: Feeling irritable or irrationally angry as a result of being hungry.

Sext: To send someone sexually explicit digital media, usually by cell phone.

 Dad bod: A man’s physique that is slightly overweight or flabby but still attractive.

Slay: To strongly impress or overwhelm someone.

 Man bun: A man’s hair gathered into a bun at the back or top of the head.

Struggle bus: A situation, task, etc., that seems difficult or frustrating.
