In today’s day and age, Internet slang has made its way into our everyday language. While we usually use certain phrases or abbreviations online and via text, the more we use them in the 3D world, the more society accepts them as actual words and parts of the English language.
For example, last week, Webster’s Dictionary added the phrase “Stay Woke” to their list of English words. The phrase, which was used immensely on social media throughout the Black Lives Matter campaign for as a phrase for people to “stay informed,” has become regularly used.
So much so, that it even made its way onto America’s favorite intellectual game show – Jeopardy.
