Updating the dictionary

Dave Pell posts about a recent Merriam-Webster survey to determine which popular words are not yet in the dictionary. Of the words in the top ten, the first four definitely have to be added, IMHO:

1. ginormous (adj): bigger than gigantic and bigger than enormous

2. confuzzled (adj): confused and puzzled at the same time

3. woot (interj): an exclamation of joy or excitement

4. chillax (v): chill out/relax, hang out with friends

Only problem with those is that number four is spelled incorrectly. It should be “w00t” 😉
