If Dictionaries Were Honest. 52 Words Redefined.

Words carry a certain social weight to them and that’s what dictionaries try to hide from us. Dictionaries give us literal meanings, dry most often, that can’t capture the different ways people use words and what they intend when they use them in different contexts. HipDict is an Instagram account that humorously redefines words and adds the honesty component to them. We have compiled the most relevant ones down below and we hope they appeal to you. Please share your favorites in the comment section.

One thought on “If Dictionaries Were Honest. 52 Words Redefined.”

  1. I love this post but you have two typos/errors… The first one is a tense agreement issue in number 23. Alphabets. It should read: Things were fine until they started showing up in math equations. The other is a past participle/adjective issue in number 33. I think so. It should read: I want to say yes, but don’t want to be held accountable if the answer is no.
