Dictionary adds hundreds of new words, phrases


(KRQE) – Webster’s Dictionary has added hundreds of new words and phrases.

“Nomophobia” is the fear of being without a cell phone, while something that’s “dipso-genic” makes you thirsty. Some other slang has also been made legit — in case you missed it — “ICYMI” is now a proper abbreviation and “TMI” may be too much information but it’s now in the dictionary.
