‘Hangry’ and ‘awesomesauce’ among new Oxford words

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Oxford Dictionaries has added another round of new words.

  • Awesomesauce — an adjective meaning extremely good or excellent.
  • Hangry — bad-tempered or irritable as a result of hunger.
  • Butt dial — inadvertently making a call on a mobile phone in one’s rear trouser pocket
  • Beer o’clock — an appropriate time of day for starting to drink beer.
