After  making making mansplain an officially legitimate English language word last year, the  Oxford Dictionary yesterday provided validity to yet another word that captures an equally annoying habit associated with the male species — manspreading. The dictionary describes it as   the practice whereby a man, especially one travelling on public transport, adopts a sitting position with his legs wide apart, in such a way as to encroach on an adjacent seat or seats.  Tom Hanks, appearing on the American TV show Late Late Show with James Corden in March this year  provided a graphic display of the art of  manspreading. And for those who are wondering what mansplain is all about, here is the meaning: (Of a man) explain (something) to someone, typically a woman, in a manner regarded as condescending or patronising.
