New words. We got new words. 840+ new words and definitions were added to our official dictionary this year. Adding words is what keeps our language current and not a dead language like the Navajo language. The Navajo people have to paint word pictures to describe new things in our world, because it is a dead language with no new words being added. For your ‘noodling’ please I’m going to list a few of these new words or definitions for words. As crazy as it is, most of these I have used.
Lifehack, bandwidth, subtweet, embiggen, dumpster-fire, cryptocurrency, wordie, demonym, unicorn, glamping, self-care, case-sensitive, Antifa, bingeable, hangry, force quit, airplane mode, ribbie, TL;DR, zoodle, mm-hmm, hmm ooh.
