‘Hashtag’ & ‘Selfie’ Among New Scrabble Dictionary Words
Publisher Merriam-Webster said that the latest edition of the game’s dictionary, the first in nearly a decade, includes 5,000 new words. Other new words include “emo,” “bling,” “mixtape” and “beatbox.”
The co-president of the North American Scrabble Players’ Association said that the additions “go a long way toward bringing us closer to the language as it is currently spoken.”
The new dictionary is now on sale.
