Miriam-Webster Dictionary offers some entertaining new words

Posted: Updated:

Grab a dictionary for some entertainment.  Really?  Is that your reaction? 

If you don't have one of the newest editions of the Miriam-Webster Dictionary, you can download it on your e-reader.  When you do, why don't you grab a craft beer or energy drink to help pass the time reading it.

I'm just joking.  I used that to point out the fact that e-reader, craft beer and energy drink are some of the new words added to the Miriam-Webster Dictionary.

Other new words that made the cut: sexting, man cave, life coach and f-bomb.

Wondering how f-bomb made the cut?  Dictionary editors say they traced the word back to 1988.  It first appeared in a "Newsday" story.  Now deceased Mets catcher Gary Carter talked about how he had given up saying the f-bomb along with other profanities.
