Merriam-Webster has added 640 new words to the dictionary, and together, they’re a pretty good portrait of how we talk to each other online in 2019.

The latest class of legitimate words include: “stan,” as in “we stan that person.” “Swole” is in there too, a popular internet term for a someone who’s muscular.

Other newly added words and phrases include:

Garbage time

Gender non-conforming

Gig economy

Go-cup

On-brand

Screen time

Top surgery

Unplug

and many more.

In the official Merriam-Webster lexicon they now join other millennial-speak such as “rando,” “adorbs” and “fav,” which the dictionary added last year.
