The Viral Words You Need To Know

Wondering why everyone's suddenly talking about being the "GOAT"?
Don't know whether being "snatched" is an insult or a compliment?
Confused as to how a human being could be referred to as "salty"?
You're not alone. It's a brave new world out there with fresh slang seemingly popping up every single bloody day. Even the coolest among us sometimes struggle to understand how words that definitely have real meanings don't seem to be used properly anymore. It used to be enough to Google "What are the new slang words?" but slang itself is pretty irrelevant these days.
Enter Refinery29: we're here to bring you up to speed with our dictionary of the latest hot slang words. You may notice that many of these words lack a certain je ne sais quoi, and that is because they have no “quoi.” They are, for the most part, a bunch of silly, goofy words. But they're so damn fun to use.
So live a little, and indulge your inner Kim Kardashian. We're not getting any younger, and the wild world of viral words is not one to be afraid of — it's one to embrace. You'd better be turnt.
