Cambridge Dictionary: new word "Q" I saw an interesting link from Cambridge Dictionary about new words the other day. https://dictionaryblog.cambridge.org/2017/09/04/new-words-4-september-2017/ Scroll down to the second one and you will see the definition of the new word "Q". "QQ" is a super common description in Taiwan for something that is chewy like tapioca. However...sadly, I don't quite understand the grammar for these parts: a chewy texture typical of food from Taiwan ....it’s a cornerstone of Taiwanese cooking so revered it appears repeatedly throughout the day... Could you please help me to decode the grammar? And do you think Q should be added to the dictionary? Since I am from Taiwan, I think it's "Yes! I've heard/read this word a lot." :D

I always thought that QQ was internet slang for someone crying
