Meanwhile, newer terms, like “ghost kitchen” and “long hauler,” are reflective of the pandemic and movement toward normalcy this year.
A ghost kitchen is a new concept of delivery-only professional food preparation facilities without dine-in seating that became more popular during the pandemic.
A long hauler is defined as “a person who experiences symptoms or health problems that linger or first appear after supposed recovery from an associated acute illness or active infection.
Aside from slang, other categories defining the present year and the previous one include topics of violence, tech, COIVD, and racial justice.
