Oxford Dictionary Adds "Yas" and "Squad Goals" alongside 300 words To Online Dictionary


Because the internet is an entirely different world, I always thought it deserved an official dictionary or you know at least a handbook that can be given to a new user or way older person who is not knowledgeable about the system of operation. So when I saw that popular social media slangs have been added to the online Oxford dictionary, I was like yas! 

See some of the words added to the dictionary below:


 Although it was only added today, the word was actually originated from the 1980s. It is often used with "Yas" and is a word used in a happy moment for say when your friend does something you think is cool, so you go "yas biatch"

Squad Goals

Congratulation! if you have a cool and good looking squad. It is a viral hashtag and caption used when you upload a picture with all of your friends and "slay"

Drunk text

First of all, if you don't drink no one thinks you are cool. Ever texting while drunk and wake up wondering who sent that; thank to Oxford!, we can define our most embarrassing moments in proper, academic terms.


I honestly can't believe I get to say "yas" and not get eyes rolled at me, it is now a word recognized by the dictionary!
