New Words in the Dictionary.

…wait, isn’t FB short for Facebook?

The Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary announced that they were adding 100 new words to their collection.  And because our society is what it is today, words such as “F-Bomb”, “A-ha Moment”, “Sexting” and my personal favourite – “Man Cave”, will be officially inducted into the dictionary.

The first thing that struck me was, “F-bomb was so 2005.”

And where the hell is phubbing?  It is statistically proven that there are way more Phubbers than there are Sexters!

So, come on, Merriam-Webster get on it!

Anyway, if you’re interested to find out what the new words are, and have a sneak peek into the degradation of the English language, and the reflection of cultural decline, click here.
