We, humans, are inquisitive convivial animals who relish developing, inventing, searching everything modish and trending. In this epoch of trends, we heed and adjudicate everything which is the talk of the town and is also popular be it fashion, lifestyle, tradition or words.

As a human who adores to read and write, I’m naturally drawn to words. And for many people who love to write, I have a very compelling topic for you to read.  

Each year, the Oxford Dictionary makes writing professionally easier and more fun by adding new words to its dictionary– meaning: New and authentic words are added to our vocabularies every year. The words added can be any new trending word, newly invented word or any slang which has become a popular one.

By the end of every year, they publish the list that is going to be added. So, 2017 gave us some new interesting words to our vocabulary. The words are listed below

YAAAS:
