What word would you like to see added to the dictionary?
Hello, my name is Alexandra. I am from Australia. And the topic I’ll be discussing with you is the word I would most like to see added to the English dictionary. Now for me, that word I would like to see is hangxiety. It’s a compound word derived from the word hangover, and the word anxiety. And it describes that feeling that you have after you’ve had a night of a little bit too much to drink, and you’ve been oversharing some of your problems. And the next day you wake up and you think, oh, no, Did I really say that? Did I really share that? Everyone must hate me. And I think it’s something that many people can relate to, especially when you happen to go out for like a work function or something like that. And you’ve been with colleagues who you’re normally really professional around, and you sort of let loose a little bit and you think, Oh, that’s not how I want them to see me.
This word is quite common on social media. So it wouldn’t surprise me if it did get added to the dictionary sometime soon. And it will just validate my feelings when that happens. How about you? Is there a word that you would like added into your languages dictionary or something that is in your language that you would like to see in the English dictionary? Because I would be really intrigued to learn a little bit more about how we can expand the vocabulary. Let me know what you think.
