Merriam Webster Is Adding FOMO, Hella AND TMI To The Dictionary.

Merriam-Webster just announced a bunch of new words they’re adding to the dictionary this year.  The editors make their choices based on a word’s impact on the English language, and whether they believe it’s here to stay.

Here are some of the new additions:


1.  FOMO.  It’s the acronym for ‘Fear Of Missing Out.’  Here’s their definition.  “Fear of not being included in something, such as an interesting or enjoyable activity, that others are experiencing.”

2.  Meet-cute.  “A cute, charming, or amusing first encounter between romantic partners, as in a movie.”

3.  Hella.  “very, extremely.”

4.  TMI.  “Too much information.”

A few others that are also being added are Bitcoin, cold turkey, gastric banding, and wacky tobacco.
