add it to your dictionary

What's the latest word to be added to the dictionary?!

The Collins English Dictionary has added "meh" to its 30th anniversary book, which will be published next year.

The definition: "An expression of utter boredom or an indication of how little you care for an idea."

Why is it being added? The head of Collins dictionaries [which is stationed in the UK] says "This is a new interjection from the US that seems to have inveigled its way into common speech over here."

Interesting! I swear, the words making it into dictionaries these days are so slang, it's weird. I'm still pushing to have nookage added to the books.. We'll see I guess.
