Adorkable Is Now A Word, Damn It

Damn it. This world is going to crap. And now, because of you, Adorkable is now a real word.

#Twictionary was a competition where Twitter users pick their favorite made up words to be put in the Collins dictionary. With 30% of the vote, adorkable is now entering the 12th print edition of the popular dictionary. Other words that were in the running included "nomakeupselfie" and"duckface." Thank Christ neither of those made it in.

adorkable (əˈdɔːkəbəl) adj slang

ETYMOLOGY C21: blend of ADORABLE and DORK

Coming in at second place with 22% of the vote was Felfie and in third place with a respectable 13% was Fatberg. Here are more of the results. Check out the process of how Collins picked everything here.
