Jackie asked me to post this and she did not say where; so I am posting it here. I hope it makes sense to you'll; it doesn't to me; I'm just the messenger *runs away before she is shot*
[crossthreading to the current Hogwash thread e] I'm surprised no one posted about this. I was very busy for quite a while after my trip; sorry to be away from this place so long, and thanks, Candy, for giving me the nudge I needed. Anyway--this was in the news, and I thought surely somebody here would have posted it, but a Search revealed 0 results. A partial quote, then the link:
F-bomb makes it into mainstream dictionary
By LEANNE ITALIE, Associated Press – Aug 13, 2012
NEW YORK (AP) — It's about freakin' time.
The term "F-bomb" surfaced in newspapers more than 20 years ago but will land Tuesday for the first time in the mainstream Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, along with sexting, flexitarian, obesogenic, energy drink and life coach.
In all, the company picks about 100 additions for the 114-year-old dictionary's annual update, gathering evidence of usage over several years in everything from media to the labels of beer bottles and boxes of frozen food.
words accepted into the dictionary
