Snip
Woke
This incorrect tense of "awake" is used in the phrase "stay woke" as well as to describe whether someone is paying attention to political and social events or aware of certain truths. For example, a man conscious of the glass ceiling and gender pay gap for women is "woke." "Get woke" can be used as an admonishment for someone who is ignorant and needs to educate himself properly about a topic.


Respek
First introduced into the lexicon in 2016 by rapper Birdman during rap radio show "The Breakfast Club," "respek" is a slang spelling of the word "respect." It can be used alone or as part of Birdman's original usage in the phrase "put some respek on my name," meaning to show someone respect.

Canceled
Predominantly used in the past tense, "canceled" is used to describe someone or something that you've rejected, deleted or cut out of your life. For example, your friend could ask you if you are still dating someone, to which you could reply, "No, they're canceled."

Thirst trap
"Thirst" or "being thirsty" is a way to describe lusting after someone, usually desperately. This slang birthed another phrase, "thirst trap," used to describe photos a person posts on social media. A thirst trap is a photo that people post with either the obvious or subtle intention of getting others to lust after them and post comments that boost their ego.

3. LOL...

One of the best aspects to the many seasons of the tv comedy, Modern Family, was the Father character, Phil's use of all the very latest acronyms, phrases, slang--with those his kid's age looking a bit shell-shocked and occasionally embarrassed--presumedly at how it sounded coming back at them.

Ahh, yes.
