New words English did not really need, but you are sure to use.

Language evolves at the pace of the people using it. As new practices and concepts become popular old words change their meaning or new words are created. Some of the new words are created from current words called portmanteau's although you might prefer frankenword (itself a portmanteau).

Here is a list of words harvested from Urban Dictionary and defined with pictures by Buzzfeed. We have simply chosen just 10 to make it easier for you to remember and use. You can enjoy all 27 once you are happy with these.
