Steel yourselves, language pedants: Dictionary.com has added 300 new words to its online database.

The latest roster additions are a potpourri of portmanteaus, hyphenations and slang terms you feel kind of embarrassed looking up, but do anyway because you are deeply uncool and language is moving into the future without you.

Three hundred words is a lot, so here are the highlights:

420, alt-right, bitchface, cat, café, cheat day, clicktivist, cold brew, dabbing, dad bod, friendiversary, hangry, K-pop, Kush, lightsaber, man bun, mic drop, petrichor, sext, slay, smackdown, stochastic, terrorism, struggle bus, superfood, teachable moment, uncanny valley
