New Words

It’s time for a new update of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, which means official recognition for some new words. The 2009 update of the 11th edition adds words like “staycation: a vacation spent at home or nearby” and “locovore: one who eats foods grown locally whenever possible.” Other new entries include waterboarding, carbon footprint, and fan fiction. Check out the list of new words and their definitions.
