Merriam-Webster has added some food-related words to the dictionary. These include e-waste and freegan, pho and turducken as well as the French-Canadian poutine.
I’m going to have to look up freegan! Hasn’t poutine been around forever?
Yeah, poutine is an old dish so I would think so. Freegan is fairly new. It’s an interesting concept, but I don’t think I could eat food from the garbage.
I am surprised that pho was just now added!
I know. Seems like it would’ve been in there before.
I’ve noticed that turducken has become a well-known word. That wasn’t a word that was in the dictionary when I was growing up! The English language continues to expand xx
Yes, it does, especially in the digital age!
Interesting that pho, turducken, and poutine are all words that have been around a long time. Wonder what words will be added in the future.
I know–I guess it takes a while of usage before words get added.
Hmm.. wonder what a freegan is? I also wonder if they added “froyo”??
Froyo–that’s a good one! A freegan is someone who eats food that has been thrown away…more from socio-political movement standpoint.
Freegan. Wow, I didn’t realize that was official. About time for pho!
I always find new dictionary additions interesting. It’s amazing how new words always need to be added.
I agree–it is interesting how the language changes.
Wow, I didn’t know freegan was a word! This is really interesting 🙂
