24 Brilliant New Words To Add To Your Dictionary

The beautiful thing about language is that it changes to reflect the times.

Many of these words come from urbandictionary.com, the most complete dictionary of modern slang, but also full of nonsense. Most of these words are portmanteaus, which are what you get when you mash both the sounds and meanings of two words together to get a new one. Did you know, for example, that the word ‘smog’ is a portmanteau (smoke and fog)? like the more popular ‘Brunch’ (breakfast and lunch), and if you’re eating your brunch with a spork, then that’s a portmanteau of a spoon and a fork.
