Abstract

Does “Squad’s OOTD on fl eek, seriously goals!” have you straining your eyes and stifl ing a groan as you try to decipher millennials’ penchant for strange, new words? Alongside a host of creative new vocabulary, millennials— generally referring to those born between the early 1980s and early 2000s—are an assortment of unique traits such as progressiveness, empathy and increasing awareness of social issues that plague not just the community around them, but also the world they live in. Inadvertently, these characteristics are refl ected in the popular terms they use. However, this can seem like endless pit of lingo for the uninitiated (millennials or no) so here’s a list of commonly known words, as well as new terms that may just be coming to a “millingo” dictionary near you.
