New English words occur day by day, some become popular and some sink or disappear in months or years. Here we collect 100 hot new words, including meanings and sentences, to show you the alive English in today's media and communications.
New English words, like old or existing words, are originated from different sources. The three main sources are:
Constructed or abbreviated by existing words,
such as Brexit (British exit,), fomo (fear of missing out)
- Transferred from other languages,
such as emoji (Japanese), bokeh (Japanese)
- Add new meaning based on existing words,
such as tweet, truther
The 100 new words with sentences are actually not limited to 100 words. Our editors maintain the list monthly and keep it 100 words around; they add or remove words, definitions, and examples to cover latest hot words.
