The New Dictionary Entries Are Here!

Merriam-Webster has unveiled the words they are adding to this year's dictionary. They include: mouse potato (like a couch potato, but replace computer for tv), unibrow, soul patch, himbo, empty suit, drama queen, google (as a verb), and bling. I've been trying to use all the words in one sentance.

It would be interesting to find out what entries were removed to make room for the new ones, or what words they were considering that didn't make the cut.

Here's the article from CNN:
