Description

Trouble negotiating the modern world, what with all these newfangled words and phrases so beloved of Gen Z and Millennials? We're here to help.

This handy dictionary hilariously captures the state of the English language in the year 2020. The Internet--and more specifically, social media--can make new and confusing words spread like wildfire. So it's easy to feel like sometimes you get left behind in the linguistic dust. For example, do you know your bromance from your dudevorce, your turnt from your thirst trap? How about bae or doe? What about FOMO, lit AF, tea (sigh--no, Dad, not the drink), dead (no, not the state of nonbeing)? Look, we totally get it--communicating in the modern world is hard. So with more than 600 entries, all replete with sassy definitions, let this book be your definitive guide to the modern English language.

With this updated and expanded edition of the original 2017 version, A Very Modern Dictionary finds itself at the very forefront of modern parlance. No longer will you need to ask the closest teenager to translate that meme sailing right over your head--this book is your passport to the new world of semantics.
