You don't say?

Language is an ever-evolving social construct, so with each new year, we get to welcome hundreds of new words into our collective lexicons.

But it looks like 2016 was extra generous to us because Merriam-Webster just added over 2,000 new words and phrases to their dictionary!

Luckily for us, a bunch of the terms are pretty celebrity-specific, so without further ado, here's a look at our favorite new additions!

Athleisure: noun Casual clothing designed to be worn both for exercising and for general use — AKA, Kate Hudson's Fabletics line.

Revenge Porn: noun Sexually explicit images of a person posted online without that person's consent especially as a form of revenge or harassment — Hulk Hogan approves of this definition.

FOMO: noun Fear of missing out — Mindy Kaling wrote an entire book about it!

Cisgender: noun Someone whose internal sense of gender corresponds with the sex the person was identified as having at birth — Basically the only good thing Caitlyn Jenner's done is opening up the conversation on gender identity.

Nomophobia: Noun Fear of being without access to a working cell phone — We have the Kardashians to thank for this one…

Do U use any of these in your everyday life??
