Hangry, Mansplain, and Swag Have Been Added to the Dictionary

posted by Scott and Sadie - 

The "Oxford English Dictionary" was founded over 130 years ago.  And now we've mangled the English language to the point where it's being forced to add stuff like THIS . . .

 

The editors just announced a new batch of words they're adding to the dictionary this year.  And here are some of the most notable ones . . .

 

1.  hangry . . . a state of anger caused by a lack of food.

2.  mansplain . . . explaining something needlessly, overbearingly, or condescendingly, typically when addressing a woman, in a manner thought to reveal a patronizing or chauvinistic attitude.

3.  swag . . . bold self-assurance in style or manner, an air of great self-confidence or superiority.

4.  me time . . . time devoted to doing what one wants, typically on one's own, as opposed to working or doing things for others.

5.  snowflake . . . a person characterized as overly sensitive or easily offended, or as feeling entitled to special treatment or consideration.

6.  Aunt Flo . . . informal, used to refer to a woman's menstrual period.
