'Side-Eye' and 'Ghosting' Have Now Been Added To The Dictionary
New terms have been added to the dictionary.
The problem with language is that it's constantly in a state of flux: one decade ghosting means annoying your mortal enemies even in death, and the next it means you've clicked your fingers and maxed out from a relationship without a trace.
Well, one group of people who have to keep on top of all the colloquial phrases are the professional panel at the dictionary headquarters - who we like to think make presentations about whether or not certain words are good enough to be added to the list.
After some deliberation, the decision-makers at Merriam Webster have figured it's about time they added a bunch of new *happening* words to their publication.
Giving the seal of approval to some new terms, they've accepted 'side-eye', 'binge-watch', and 'ghosting' as words that will now sit in the same book as 'oxymoron', 'paradox' and 'verisimilitude'.
Never give up on your dreams, guys.
