Every year, Dictionary.com adds new words and definitions that have been more widely used by the general public. It was only a matter of time before they added a Philly slang word to the list.
With all the new talk of AI and computer generated thought processes, it only makes sense that some of the AI related terms were of the first to be included.
Biohacking (strategic biological experimentation especially on one’s self) is one of the many words that was added.
Among many other recently popular terms are: algo (computer algorithm), and information pollution (the introduction of falsehood, irrelevance, bias, and sensationalism into a source of information, resulting in the dilution of essential facts).
Dictionary.com which also runs Thesaurus.com, announced 566 new entries and 348 new definitions for the fall of 2023.
One Philly slang word is among the 566 new words added and we couldn’t be more excited and finally, vindicated.
We always knew it was a word. If you’re from the Philadelphia area, you use it regularly.
The newest hyper local term to be added as an official word into Dictionary.com is, JAWN.
That’s right. Jawn now has a place in the dictionary and an official definition.
Jawn is listed as “something or someone that doesn’t need a specific word.”
I mean, it didn’t really need a definition. That was the beauty of the whole thing. But, at least now we can argue that it’s a real word.
