Merriam-Webster Adds ‘Frenemy,’ ‘Locavore,’ And ‘Staycation’ To The Dictionary

The kind editors over at Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary have updated the tome, adding in about 100 new words. Some of the words that made the cut: frenemy, webisode, waterboarding, locavore, vlog, flash mob, shwarma, green-collar, staycation, and reggaeton. To get added to the dictionary, editors have to see evidence that lots of people are using the word. Given this list, I’m kinda surprised that vajayjay didn’t make the cut. Maybe next year? [AP]
