Think you know all of the Gen-Z speak? Think again!

Anyone with teenagers will know that the new generation's language is from a whole other world. Born from various social media platforms, words like 'Rizz' (romantic appeal or charm) and 'Simp' (a foolish or stupid person) have now officially made their way into the Merriam Webster dictionary. Guess we have no choice but to start using them now!

Here are a few other of Merriam Webster's newest additions:


Extremely good: EXCELLENT.

Thirst Trap

A photograph (such as a selfie) or video shared for the purpose of attracting attention or desire.



An ambitious and successful woman (especially a businesswoman or entrepreneur).



A hamburger patty that is pressed thin onto a heated pan or griddle at the start of cooking.



To spend excessive time online scrolling through news or other content that makes one feel sad, anxious, angry, etc.


Quiet Quitting
