Lolz.

If every word in the above paragraph makes sense, congratulations: You’re on the cutting edge of the English language, according to the Oxford Dictionaries Online.

This Internet-based sibling to the storied Oxford English Dictionary released its latest batch of new words Thursday, and it’s a doozy.
