Here are all the Star Wars terms that have been put in the dictionary
Always keeping up with the times, the Oxford English Dictionary has been updated with a variety of modern words and phrases, including the most well-known terms in the Star Wars universe.
The nerdy terms include “lightsabre”, “Jedi”, “Padawan” and “Force” (with a capital F). Here’s the context given to each word:
“ In the fictional universe of the Star Wars films: a weapon resembling a sword, but having a destructive beam of light in place of a blade. Also: a toy resembling this.”
“In the fictional universe of the Star Wars films: a member of an order of heroic, skilled warrior monks who are able to harness the mystical power of the Force (see force n.1 Additions). Also in extended and allusive use; esp. someone (humorously) credited with great skill or preternatural powers. Also more fully Jedi knight, Jedi master.”
“In the fictional universe of the Star Wars films: an apprentice Jedi (see Jedi n.). Also (often humorously) in extended and allusive use: a youthful, naive, or untrained person. Frequently in young Padawan, esp. as a form of address.”
“With the and chiefly with capital initial. In the fictional universe of the Star Wars films: a mystical universal energy field which certain individuals, such as the Jedi (see Jedi n.), can harness to gain special powers or abilities. Also in extended use, and in allusions to dialogue from the Star Wars films, esp. may the Force be with you (used to wish someone good luck, courage, etc.).”
Other modern additions this month (October) to the dictionary include the word “chillax”, “whatevs” and “fake news”.
Sadly, these words are yet to make an official appearance in the Scrabble Dictionary, meaning you’ll still have to make a case for yourself if you dare to construct any of these words.
