The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) has launched the youth slang word appeal to record all distinctive words - old and new, formal and informal - that shape the language. OED said it wants to hear about the unique words and expressions that children and young people use and if one doesn't understand these, and then it can come to their rescue. Some of the words frequently used as slang these days are "bare", "dank" and "hench". "Slang terms are always challenging for dictionary editors to track but young people's language today can be particularly elusive - because the terms that are in vogue change so rapidly and newer ephemeral modes of communication (texting, WhatsApp, Snapchat, etc.) make it difficult to monitor and record this kind of vocabulary.
