Merriam-Webster just added 640 new words: ‘Buzzy’, ‘Swole’ and a new meaning for ‘Snowflake’
A word (heh) of warning: If you hate internet slang and buzzy pop culture words, this news isn't for you. Merriam-Webster has added 640 new words to the dictionary, and together, they're a pretty good portrait of how we talk to each other online in 2019. Take, for instance, the word "buzzy." We just used it in the previous paragraph and it felt so natural! So appropriate. And wouldn't you know, it's one of those 640 new words. The most surprising news there is that it wasn't in the dictionary already.
