"Grexit" included in Oxford online dictionary


YEREVAN, AUGUST 28, ARMENPRESS. Feeling hangry? Can't find a seat on the subway because of manspreading? Annoyed by people butt-dialing you?

All three slang words officially joined OxfordDictionaries.com on Thursday in a quarterly update of popular phrases that also included Grexit (a potential Greek exit from the Eurozone) and brainfart (a momentary mental lapse). Armenpress reports, referring to Reuters, that “manspreading” was coined to describe men who take up extra room on public transport by sitting with their legs wide apart. Last year, New York City transport authorities launched a poster campaign on the subway in a bid to discourage it.

“Hangry” is defined as a bad mood brought on by hunger, while butt-dialing is the popular term for inadvertently calling someone on a cell phone placed in a rear pocket.
