Your vocabulary may have been littered with words and phrases like "EVOO" and "food insecurity," but they weren't real words until today.
Merriam-Webster dictionary added more than 1,000 new words on Tuesday to its database of official words. The new words make reference to pop culture, science, foreign languages, and everything in between. A thousand words is impressive, but it pales in comparison to last year, when Merriam-Webster added more than 2,000 new words to its catalog.
