50 Of The Funniest And Most Honest “Definitions” Of Everyday Words Explained In This Crowd-Sourced Online Dictionary
As a linguist, I gotta say, dictionaries are hella interesting, not just because of the obscure etymologies or weird words you can find in them, but because of the rare and unheard of meanings that ordinary everyday words can have.
But then the internet one-ups the lexical game and becomes home to collaborative dictionaries that deal with words you wouldn’t see in traditional dictionaries. No, I’m not referring to the Urban Dictionary, but that’s a treasure in and of itself too. I’m talking about the HipDict.
HipDict is a crowd-sourced dictionary that redefines regular, everyday words with meanings that make much more sense in reality. While most dictionaries define words in concept, HipDict focuses on the spirit and nails it spot-on.
We have already covered entries from this dictionary on several occasions, like on this one and on this one, but it’s growing, and so we present to you new and unique entries in this lexical compendium.
Scroll down, vote on your favorites, and why not share some of your definitions to otherwise very mundane words in the comment section below!
