Butt Dial, Mic Drop Are Now Dictionary-Worthy Words
Sorry, grammar purists. The website oxforddictionaries.com, affiliated with the Oxford Dictionary, added 1,000 new words in its latest update.By Jamal Andress | August 27, 2015
It's that time of year again, when the proper and pristine dictionary companies show how hip they are by adding slang terms to their hallowed pages.
This time, it's Oxford's turn. The Oxford dictionary branch added 1,000 new words to oxforddictionaries.com.
One of the new words is manspreading — you know, the guy who sits with his legs wide apart on the subway. The addition of manspreading comes shortly after the addition of mansplaining from last year's update.
