FML, KMN: Merriam-Webster adds FOMO, dox, TMI and more to dictionary

Zach Epstein


The Millennialification of America continued this week as Merriam-Webster published a list of some of the 1,400 words it recently added to the Merriam-Webster Unabridged dictionary. Among them are numerous acronyms, slang words and other phrases used commonly by Millennials as well as younger generations.

Here are some examples:

DON'T MISS: This tiny device might be every iPhone owner’s new best friend

That's right, hella, dox, FOMO and TMI are now all in the Merriam-Webster Unabridged dictionary, and that's just a small sampling of the 1,400 terms or phrases and 700 new senses of existing terms that join earlier additions like totes amazeballs and YOLO.

Good work, guys.
