Donald Trump’s lexicon has had an impact on the English language which is reflected in the latest additions to oxforddictionaries.com, the online reference guide to current English. Additions including "clicktivism" (a pejorative word for armchair activists on social media), "haterade" (excessive negativity, criticism, or resentment), "otherize" (view or treat – a person or group of people – as intrinsically different from and alien to oneself) and "herd mentality" (the tendency for people’s behaviour or beliefs to conform to those of the group to which they belong) all emerged during the 2016 battle for the White House, said head of content development Angus Stevenson.

current/actuel, ici branché – armchair/en pantoufles (qui n'est pas sur le terrain) – resentment/rancune, ressentiment – alien/étranger – herd/troupeau – head/responsable, chef
