Oxford English Dictionary Adds ‘Kewl’

The word “kewl”, a variant of the word “cool”, has been added to the Oxford English Dictionary and Collins English Dictionary.

By definition, it represents “an affected or exaggerated pronunciation of cool”.

The word first appeared as early as 1990, when used to describe music group Janes Addiction: “Janes Addiction is some kewl stuff”.

However, “kewl” is still regarded as slang, which means it still remains unacceptable in formal writing.
