New Words

I'm a wordsmith so I'm always interested in our changing, evolving language. FYI, here's a word that has officially come into use. It is one of the more than 100 new entries to the new edition of the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary. Also noted is the year in which Merriam-Webster first found the word used in an English-language publication:

--- Air quotes (1989): gesture made by raising and flexing the index and middle fingers of both hands, used to call attention to a spoken word or expression.
