You can thank Kim K for these terms

The Kardashian-Jenner family is a ubiquitous slice of pop culture nowadays. Seemingly everywhere, this family has dominated pop culture unlike any other family before or after. After a decade on our television screens with their ridiculously popular TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians (ever heard of it?), two major beauty empires, various talk shows, movie and TV cameos and all the iPhone apps your heart desires, there's no sign the Kardashians (Kris, Kourtney, Kim and Khloé) or the Jenners (Kylie and Kendall) are going away anytime soon. But why do we want that?

Perhaps the biggest contribution the Kardashians and Jenners have made to pop culture is their special lingo. Part hipster dialect, part specially crafted lingo, the words we closely associate with the Kardashians and Jenners might surprise you. So just to make sure you're totally fresh on what words are theirs (or heavily used by them), why not take a look through our unofficial Kardashian dictionary and see for yourself?
