New Words Make It Into The Merriam-Webster Dictionary Tomorrow

Every once in a while the editors of the Merriam Webster Dictionary decide to add words. Most are words that have been created to keep up with technology or just the world we live in today in general. “Sexting” for example, is one of the words that will be added to the printed version of the dictionary starting tomorrow (August 15).

Other words include “energy drink” and “life coach.” Here is the one that surprised me – the “F” word is just now making it into the dictionary! That’s not a new word at all, but I guess it’s just a sign of the times that the word can actually now be printed in the dictionary and deemed socially acceptable? I would have thought the “F Bomb” had made it in there years ago, but obviously not!
