New words

The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) recently added over a thousand new words and phrases to its dictionary. A few of the entries are “hangry” (adj, bad-tempered as a result of hunger), “mansplaining” (v, of a man: to explain something needlessly, overbearingly, or condescendingly), and “me time” (n, time devoted to doing what one wants). Here is a link to the whole list of the new additions. OED makes updates to its dictionary four times a year. Here is a video about how many words there are in the English language.
