With 2019 nearly at an end, it presents a great opportunity to share some creative and common words or phrases used by many people of the younger generation. As many library professionals already know, communication is key and this fun infographic from Global English Editing sheds some light on to words that are being commonly used.

Spice Up Your Vocabulary

Gen Y and Z are constantly using new words and they want to read content that’s relatable and fun.

It doesn’t matter what you write about, if you want to appeal to internet-speak readers everywhere, you need to familiarize yourself with the lingo they’re using.

But, how do you do it?

You could read more books, spend hours on social media, or play word puzzles with your friends (if they actually agree to play with you!). But if you aren’t already familiar with the words, it won’t be easy to catch up.

Thankfully, Global English Editing has done the work for you. They found 19 words that every writer should know in 2020 and compiled it into an easy to follow infographic.

You’ll learn everything from what the new words are, to what they mean, to how to use them in a sentence. You can even keep it with you so that you can easily remind yourself while writing.

When you use these words, your writing will become more accessible, especially to younger readers.

Check it out the infographic below for the new words to add to your vocabulary in 2020.
