‘YOLO’ Now in the Oxford English Dictionary
By Philip Cosores
You’ve annoyed your parents, your friends, your teachers, and even the Twitter bots that follow you with your endless use of “YOLO,” inspired by your deep love of all things Drake (the term comes from his song, “The Motto“) and convinced that you do indeed only live once.
Well, good news, the joke is on them because “YOLO” is now in the Oxford English Dictionary, reports Billboard.
Yup, now it is only a matter of time before you can use “YOLO” in Words with Friends. In fact, it is only a matter of time before “Words with Friends” is in the Oxford English Dictionary.
Also among the new words joining the dictionary (but not related to music) are “amazeballs,” “binge-watch,” “hate-watch,” “ICYMI,” “FML,” “SMH,” “vape” and a favorite around the Radio.com offices, “side-eye.”
This is the best day for the language since dubstep became a real word. #neverforget.
