From ‘Tithi’ to ‘Evoo’ to ‘eSport’, Oxford Dictionary Gives Space To Diversity And Feelings

Oxford Dictionary is the cardinal go-to for everything semantics and syntax, and if we are taught one thing is that unless it’s in a dictionary, it’s not a word. One can go by using the most outlandish words so long as Oxford gives it a go. This is especially important because the dictionary is now accepting and embracing words that define the mood of an evolving world. No longer is the dictionary home to quintessential tough words, or necessarily obvious ones. Now, the dictionary gives space to words that encompass emotions, diversity, and feelings. So when Oxford released it’s new words for the year, we jotted down those that are collectively important for the everyday millennial!
