This morning, Merriam-Webster announced it just added a whopping 1,000 new entries to its dictionary. Some of the additions are turns of phrase that have only more recently become part of wider, mainstream cultural vernacular, from "ghosting" to "throwing shade"; others are such phrases as "safe space" and "microaggression."
Included in this slew of new faces are 30 new food-related words. Browse the list below at your own leisure. I'm honestly a bit flummoxed as to how a good number of these of these weren't in the dictionary already. Oh, well. Welcome to the club, kids.
Genuinely curious—what food words would you nominate for next year's batch? Let us know in the comments.
