Oxford University Press has announced its 2023 Word of the Year, and it’s not “Swiftie.” The winner is “Rizz,” a Gen Z slang term meaning “style, charm, or attractiveness.” The word gained popularity after Spider-Man actor Tom Holland mentioned it in an interview. Over 32,000 votes were cast for the Word of the Year. Oxford Languages President Casper Grathwohl said it’s interesting to see a word like “rizz” come to the forefront after a challenging few years, suggesting a prevailing mood of opening up and finding confidence. The rise of internet culture has accelerated the evolution of language. I had to look it up … so does that mean that I don’t have it? This “Rizz” like character?? LOL I feel old!
