Hashtag, Selfie - Now Official Words in the Dictionary
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) —
Spoiler alert! Nah, not really. That's just one of the 150 new words and phrases being added to Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary.
Others include "hashtag," "selfie," and "tweep" - a person who uses Twitter.
But the new additions are not all about digital life.
Some are food driven, including "pho" which is a Vietnamese soup, "turducken" which is a duck stuffed into a chicken stuffed into a turkey, and "freegan" which is someone who scavenges for free food in store and restaurant trash bins as a way to reduce consumption of resources.
