Merriam-Webster has recently added new “millennial-themed” words to its online dictionary.  The website just unveiled a total of 840 words, and users are loving it. Among these you can now find words like “hangry”, “adorbs”, “Instagramming”, and “guac.” Online dictionaries are continuously updating their range to appeal to the new generations. Even words with foreign roots made the cut such as “iftar” (the sun-down meal where Muslims break their fast during Ramadan) and “gochujang” (a Korean chili paste). Although there are plenty of slang words found in national dictionaries, it may not be the best idea to include them in your essays. It is totally fine to tell someone that they look “totes adorbs” though because guess what? You can now.
