F-Bomb Added To Dictionary

Filed by KOSU News in US News.
August 14, 2012

We expect that most folks won’t need to look up the definition. But just in case, f-bomb now has its own entry in the Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary.

And no, the entry doesn’t appear to be illustrated with a image of recent vice presidents (Biden and Cheney), who have been known to drop an f-bomb from time-to-time.

The other 14 new entries in this year’s update of the dictionary:

– aha moment

– bucket list

– cloud computing

– copernicium

– earworm

– energy drink

– game changer

– gassed

– gastropub

– man cave

– mash-up

– sexting

– systemic risk

– underwater [Copyright 2012 National Public Radio]
