“Post-Truth” officially added to the Oxford English Dictionary

“Oxford English Dictionary delved into the political.

The dictionary added the words “woke” and “post-truth” to its 2017 update. The words are particularly linked to the 2016 presidential election and issues on race and police shootings.

The dictionary said “post-truth” denotes “circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping political debate or public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.'”
