Language is one of those dynamic things that constantly evolves over time.

Thanks to the Internet, it seems like creative, new slang words constantly come into fruition.

However, it can be hard to keep up with the latest lingo littering our Twitter feeds, and sometimes the definitions of these seemingly simple words can be pretty deceiving.

Seriously, what happened to the good old days when "thirsty" just meant you needed a glass of water?

There's nothing more embarrassing than using a slang word completely out of context because it means something entirely different than what it sounds like it should mean.

Or even worse, falling behind on the times and telling someone their #OOTD is "so fetch" instead of "on fleek."
