Trending: Urban Dictionary for adults

Central PA Live

Teens these days seem to be speaking another language.

That’s why a high school teacher in Massachusetts came up with something to help adults better communicate with Generation Z, and his idea is going viral.

James Callahan is a sociology teacher at Lowell High School.

He decided to create an urban dictionary to define all the new terms kids use nowadays.

Callahan’s spreadsheet went viral when one of his students shared it on Twitter.

The post was liked and shared more than 500,000 times.

What may seem like normal words take on a whole new meaning for teens now known as Generation Z. Like it what it means to be “dead”, or the meaning of a snack or what itmeans to take an L.
