| Filed under: BookzAmazingGIFs

Merriam Webster adds new words.

Merriam-Webster is a master of shade, so it's no wonder they've added that particular word to the dictionary!

Besides "shade," a thousand new words have been added, including "Seussian," "binge-watch," "humblebrag," "side-eye," "truther," "ghost (as a verb)," and "prosopagnosia."

Gee, we wonder which "unprincipled politician" they're referring to! LOLz!

Lisa Schneider, Chief Digital Officer & Publisher at Merriam-Webster, said:

"This is a significant addition of words to our dictionary, and it reflects both the breadth of English vocabulary and the speed with which that vocabulary changes."

Hurray for new words!
