New words keeping coming! Merriam-Webster added more than 1,000 new words in February of this year. Now Dictionary.com has followed suit with more than 300 new words and definitions to its online database. Several of the new words come straight from the headlines such as Black Lives Mater and alt-right. Words such as 420 and Kush have been added as marijuana is more mainstream. Slang terms such as smackdown and slay were added.

Dictionary.com lexicographer Jane Solomon sas that choosing new words is an intense and involved process.
Had a grin on my face today writing this, Spell Check came up for most of these new words. Ha Ha!
