Oxford University Press has chosen ‘rizz’ as the Word of the Year for 2023, finding particular popularity among Generation Z. This term has seen significant online traction, accumulating billions of hashtag views across diverse social media platforms.

Oxford University Press (OUP) defines ‘rizz’ as a quality that includes style, charm, or attractiveness, and the ability to attract a romantic or sexual partner. People believe it is a condenced version of the word ‘Charisma’.

Out of eight shortlisted words capturing the spirit and concerns of 2023, ‘rizz’ emerged as the winner through a public vote, ultimately influencing the decision made by Oxford lexicographers.

The contenders included terms such as ‘Swiftie’, signifying an enthusiastic fan of Taylor Swift; ‘beige flag’, describing a characteristic with unclear positive or negative qualities; and ‘situationship’, a definition for a romantic or sexual relationship not considered formal or established.

Oxford University Press highlighted ‘rizz’ as a fascinating illustration of language evolving within communities before gaining broader societal acceptance. The statement underscores how younger generations, particularly Gen Z, shape language in various realms, reflecting their influence on activism, dating, and broader culture.
