Selfie, Dubstep, Fangirl Are All Dictionary Words Now. Sigh.


May 20th | categories: whatever, WTF

Dubstep, Auto-Tune, Fangirl, Crowdfunding, Hashtag and m***********g SELFIE all make the cut for the newest edition of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary. Sigh.



I feel like we should make up a word and use the s*** out of it for the next 24 months and see if it makes the dictionary. Maybe anger shouldn't be the reaction to knowing that slang words are taking over for traditional language, but knowing that the nerdiest 3rd grader in the country could potentially have to spell dubstep to win the Scripps National Spelling Bee makes me a little more dead inside.



That's better.

Ugh! I don't even now what half those words are. Technology is killing human speech!
