New Words

I saw in the news today that Webster’s Dictionary has added new words to the dictionary. One of these words is “wedgie.” You know, that uncomfortable underwear prank that middle schoolers are prone to. Anyway, I was thinking how great American English is. We are so flexible and so ready to embrace new words. Now, if we were living in France, a wedgie would probably turn out to be, remonter du lingerie, or in Germany, ziehenobenUnterwashen. (Disclaimer: I know neither French or German so I just looked up some words in a dictionary.) Best of all, though, is that one of the new words for this year is “blog.”
