Instagram Account Imagines If Dictionaries Were Honest

Advertisement

Unless you’re a word enthusiast, (like me!), the dictionary might seem like a pretty dull book. Sure, it’s useful when you need to look up a word you don’t recognize, but it’s not exactly “pleasure reading” for most people.

But what if a dictionary were less about what words mean, and more about how people actually use them? That’s the premise behind HipDict, a Instagram page that posts words’ alternate definitions that are both funny and a bit more true-t0-life. Some HipDict entries are for common words, others are for words they’ve invented to keep up with our ever-evolving modern lives, and you can check out 15 of the best HipDict entries below:
