New Words For Words With Friends
Get frustrated playing Words With Friends? Need a few new words? Merriam Webster has added some new words, and since they added them, they are now “legal”. Legal to use in Words With Friends and Scrabble. This book (the new Scrabble Dictionary) comes out next week. Let us know if you try them and if they work or not! A few of the five thousand words that were added include: “Bromance,” “Selfies” and even “Frenemies.” Merriam Webster’s editor-at-large Peter Sokolowski defends the addition of the words saying they’ve become part of the culture, part of the language and now a part of the dictionary. Other new pop culture words added to Merriam Webster’s Official Scrabble Players Dictionary include “chillax,” “buzzkill” and “texter.” The Yiddish term “schmutz” and foreign words such as “qigong,” which is a Chinese exercise routine, and “quinzhee” – an Inuit word for an igloo-like shelter, also made the cut.
