F-Bomb Added to the Dictionary!
Mirriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary
is now home to about a hundred new additions which probably has some teachers shaking their heads.
F-Bomb! Sexting! Bucket List! Man Cave! These are some of the new adds announced yesterday by Mirriam-Webster.
Also making the list: energy drink, brain cramp, and life coach.
And a few additions are celebrity-related. “Aha moment” is a term you’ve probably heard Oprah say a hundred thousand times, and Stephen King helped spread the term “earworm”, describing when a song gets stuck in your head.
Can you think of a current term that should one day be in the dictionary?
