It happens every year, the Oxford Dictionary adds new words to their dictionary and this year’s list is a little off-putting. I mean, I have heard all of these words at some point and usually associated most of them with collegiate drunk person speak and not educational. You can see how many of them you recognize from USA Today’s article:
Biatch (noun): Used as an affectionate or disparaging form of address.
Brewer’s droop (noun): Inability in a man to achieve or maintain an erection as a consequence of drinking an excess of alcohol.
Cat lady (noun): An older woman who lives alone with a large number of cats, to which she is thought to be obsessively devoted.
Craptacular (adjective): Remarkably poor or disappointing.
Drunk text (noun): A text message sent while drunk, typically one that is embarrassing or foolish.
Fitspiration (noun): A person or thing that serves as motivation for someone to sustain or improve health and fitness.
Haterade (noun): Excessive negativity, criticism, or resentment.
In vino veritas (exclamation): Under the influence of alcohol, a person tells the truth.
Sausage fest (noun): An event or group in which the majority of participants are male.
(exclamation): Expressing great pleasure or excitement.
Seriously, what are we doing Society? This is what we’ve succumbed to, eh? Craptacular? Really?! I had more hope for us but I guess nothing surprises me anymore these days. Who even uses that word?
