The Dictionary Just Got Woke. Merriam-Webster Dictionary Adds Millennial Slang 3/7/18 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

The dictionary just got woke.

The Daily Caller reports the Merriam-Webster online dictionary has added over 800 new words including millennial slang to the latest edition.

Some of the millennial slang added includes mansplain, subtweet, and dumpster fire.

These words were added online only and not in the unabridged dictionary, so the English language isn’t dead yet.

If they’re gonna start adding slang, they gotta add snowflake, triggered, and MAGA, ‘cause that would be totes cool.
