300 New Scrabble Words

Leave a comment

There are reports that Merriam-Webster who produce the official dictionary for Scrabble have released an updated edition with 300 words added.
Some of those words are featured here at this post on the Merriam-Webster website.
Probably the biggest news is that ‘OK’ is now on the approved list.
If you’re not happy about that you could say ‘ew’ or make a ‘frowny’ face, because they’re both there as well.
Scrabble purists will celebrate new words, the rest of us will lament the disintegration of English language.
Cue: zomboid, twerk, sheeple, wayback, botnet, emoji, facepalm, puggle and nubber.
