New Entries in the Collins English Dictionary

Collins has released the 9th edition of its English Dictionary which includes a cornucopia of new entries. The Times pre-empted its release by observing that the modern vocabulary presents a less than flattering picture of Britain under the outgoing Prime Minister.

New additions include: hoodie (“a young person who wears a hooded sweatshirt, regarded by some as a potential hooligan”), muffin top, extraordinary rendition, wags, carbon footprint, me-media, Croydon facelist.

Covered by The Age, the BBC, The Independent and Yahoo.
