It’s a brand-new bouncing baby WORD

Merriam-Webster has just released the new words to be added to the 2012 dictionary. Some are a foregone conclusion like “bucket list”. After all, by the time there’s a movie based on the idea, the dictionary was bound to go with the flow.

Same with “systemic risk” (from the Global Financial Crisis), “cloud computing”, and “sexting”.

For a couple of fun articles on the newly approved words, check out:
