“Beer o’clock” and “wine o’clock” are just two in dozens of new words that were added to the online edition of Oxford Dictionaries on August 27.

The dictionary’s latest additions reflect what English speakers are talking about in 2015—namely gender identity, technology and the best times of day to drink beer and wine.
