Merriam-Webster is finally putting into words what Otheists have known for years — the meaning of an aha moment!
Fifteen new words are being added to the dictionary for its 2012 edition and of course, they couldn’t leave out one of Oprah Winfrey’s signature phrases!!
Check out the EXCLUSIVE video (above) to hear its definition in O’s own words!
We are aha-orgasming EVERYWHERE!! LOLz!
Oprah, however, wasn’t the FIRST to use the phrase, surprisingly enough…back in 1939, it can be found in a psychology textbook! Who knew?!
Mz. Winfrey popularized it when she started putting it to use on her talk show in the ‘90s!
As for some of the other words added? New additions include sexting, mash-up, game changer and f-bomb!
