Last year, my son used the word donk, and I had no idea what a donk was. It’s a butt — an ample one. It is not in Merriam Webster’s version of a dictionary.

But it’s in songs, even country songs. It was not among the new NPR words. I found donk and more contemporary jargon in the Urban Dictionary and the online slang dictionary. So here’s the translation of a few you might hear from family members this holiday season.

YOLO – you only live once. I missed this somehow. It’s been around forever in texting just like LOL, but it was lost on me.

iFatigue — Apple product introductions are wearing us out. At anagramer.com, this word gets 12 – 14 points in Scrabble and Words with Friends. Not sure if it is officially accepted.

Typerventilating — rapid instant messaging. I am guilty of this — my kids will tell you that.

Prezo or Preso — a short presentation.

Sofa Sunday — day people shop using iThings which probably results in iFatigue.
The Urban Dictionary has a word of the day, and some are pretty funny — others are crude, lewd and definitely not kid-friendly. If someone you work with, live with or comes to visit speaks in slang you don’t understand, keep Urban Dictionary and the online slang dictionary handy, but don’t just sit on your donk and get iFatigue looking up words.
