Oxford University Press released its quarterly update of new words being added to OxfordDictionaries.com on Thursday. Among them: bants, hangry, manspreading and beer o'clock.
For something new to make the cut, Oxford Dictionaries must have evidence that the word is being widely used in the English language. Included in the new entries is Mx, which can be used by people who don't want to specify a gender.
All of these words have been added to the web version of the dictionary. It remains to be seen if they'll ultimately make the Oxford English Dictionary — a historical document that's been collecting words for more than 1,000 years.
My favourite is number 5.
