Words of Summer

Words ofSummer

Just in time for your summer staycation reading pleasure, 100 new words and phrases have been added to the eleventh edition of Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary. You may have read about this in lexicographic fan fiction, but if you missed it, turn down that loud reggaeton, finish your schwarma, and click on these new items of semi-official American English.

Some new words like haram seem pretty kosher; others are phony as a sock puppet and we wouldn’t use them with our worst frenemy. Find new words you like? Text ’em to the whole flash mob.’
