In recent years which English words are added to dictionaries??

Could you share new English words/unexplored words or not common used words with me? I want to improve my vocabulary..

One thing to remember about the words on those lists is that the fact that they made it onto the official lists means that most of the words are widely used today. There are thousands of words in dictionaries that aren't used nearly as much as the new additions to the dictionaries. However, the older a person is, the less likely they are to use the new words.

Dictionary websites provide updates on new words and there are numerous articles published each year about these words. English also ends up incorporating a lot of preexisting foreign words.

Most of the new English words getting added are related to technology. Slang words are becoming more well known. 

 

The best example I can think of is "selfie". I believe it just got added to the Oxford dictionary. 

 

To learn more modern words I would recommend reading new books that come out that are based in today's world. Fiction or action books.
