Merriam-Webster offers new Entries!

According to the Springfield, Massachusettes dictionary publisher, Merriam-Webster's lexicographers have been very busy searching through national newspapers, entertainment magazines, trade journals and web sites for new words and phrases.

The latest edition offers definitions for about 100 new words. Some of the interesting additions are unibrow, soul patch, mouse potato and empty suit. A formal definition to one of the Internet's most recognizable names, Google, was also offered.

My husband will be amused to find he owns a "soul patch"!

Have a great weekend!
