620+ new words to study

Merriam-Webster dictionary added a bunch of interesting words like ‘stan,’ ‘salutogenesis,’ ‘buzzy,’ ‘gig economy,’ ‘qubit,’ and ‘garbage time.’

The dictionary added the new meaning for:

  1. old words, like “snowflake: Now used to mean both “someone regarded or treated as unique or special” and “someone who is overly sensitive,”
  2. compound words “page view: an instance of a user viewing an individual page on a website,”
  3. science and medicine “bioabsorbable: capable of being absorbed by living tissue,”
  4. business “gig economy: economic activity that involves the use of temporary or freelance workers to perform jobs typically in the service sector.”

Also, the best part about this update is a range of entertainment-related words:

  • Buzzy: causing or characterized by a lot of speculative or excited talk or attention (that is, generating buzz).
  • EGOT: An entry in the dictionary seems like an appropriate award for the acronym that stands for the rare achievement of winning an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony.

 

  • Bottle episode: an inexpensively produced episode of a television series that is typically confined to one setting.
  • Stan: an extremely or excessively enthusiastic and devoted fan.
