You know him. You hate him. He’s Tyler.
That’s why both Merriam-Webster and the Oxford English Dictionary are reaching across the pond, shaking hands and announcing a new word specifically to define the emotions one bears when faced with a Tyler: “Intylerable.”
Both dictionaries define “Intylerable” as: A man so boorish, so self-righteous., so… Tyler. A man whose presence… can be so overwhelming in presence that he is rendered indescribable.
