Merriam-Webster Adds “Swole,” “EGOT” & Eminem’s Definition of “Stan” to Dictionary
The Merriam-Webster dictionary just got even more “swole” after a whopping 640 new words were added to the reference tome this week. The new entries include swole, bug-out bag, go-cup, EGOT, and bottle episode. And if you “stan” Eminem’s 2000 single “Stan,” then you’ll definitely stan the news that “stan”–as defined by Em’s track–is also among the new entries. In fact, it’s now in there as a noun (“an extremely or excessively enthusiastic and devoted fan”) and a verb (“to be an extremely devoted and enthusiastic fan of someone or something”).
