Scrabble Adds 5,000 Words

You can take a “selfie” with your “frenemy” and you’ll earn 24 points in your Scrabble game when you do. Merriam-Webster is adding 5,000 new words to the updated version of the Official Scrabble Players Dictionary, due out August 11th. The book’s editor tells the New York Daily News when slang becomes part of our culture, it becomes part of the dictionary. Purists say they fear the words will disappear from pop culture as quickly as they arrived.
