‘Rizz’ named Oxfords word of the year

Tom Holland in an interview

If you’re like me and are super online you get introduced to new slang daily. But for every “glizzy” there’s a “Fetch”. But the ultimate test of a words impact on the language is to have it recognized by the people who keep a historical run of words in our lexicon.

The Oxford English Dictionary. Side note: equally as impressive is being Merriam-Websters word of the year, but they chose “Authentic”.

But this year Oxford landed on “Rizz”. It means your game with the ladies/men. A man with rizz can seduce a woman easily. They get numbers.

It topped “Swiftie” (an enthusiastic fan of Taylor Swift), “situationship” (an informal romantic or sexual relationship) and “prompt” (an instruction given to an artificial intelligence program) in the annual decision by experts at the publisher of the multivolume Oxford English Dictionary.

The four finalists were selected by a public vote and the winner was announced on Monday. Educate yourself.
