New Words Added to Oxford English Dictionary

Guys, if we're not careful, we're like a year away from "Netflix and chill" and "slide into your DMs" getting added to the dictionary.

The Oxford English Dictionary just added a bunch of new, modern words, and we'll say this . . . all of us are definitely changing the English language.  Here are some of the additions . . .

1.  binge watch.  Verb, "To watch multiple episodes (of a television program) consecutively or in rapid succession."

2.  imposter syndrome.  Noun, "The persistent inability to believe that one's success is deserved or has been legitimately achieved as a result of one's own efforts or skills."

3.  stan.  Verb, "Be an overzealous or obsessive fan of a particular celebrity."

4.  microaggression.  Noun, "A statement, action, or incident regarded as an instance of indirect, subtle, or unintentional discrimination or prejudice."

5.  spoiler alert.  Noun, "An intervention used to warn . . . that an important detail of the story is about to be divulged or alluded to."
