The next time a parent, older relative or friend asks what ‘cray’ means, you no longer have to refer to that Kanye West and Jay Z song that spurred the use of the slang word for ‘crazy.’
Now, just point them in the direction of the Oxford Dictionaries’ online database. The new entries include slang terms used most heavily in social media, such as “SMH,” “subtweet” and “throw shade.”
Other words you can add to that list? Side boob. Hot mess. Amazeballs. And the ever-popular YOLO.
Don’t forget “bro hug,” what the database defines as “a friendly embrace between two men.”
Never miss a local story.
“Neckbeard” is a thing, too, and not just in no-shave November. It’s explained as hair growth on a man’s neck, but is also “regarded as indicative of poor grooming.”
