Merriam-Webster adds 'jeggings,' 'photobomb,' 'NSFW,' and more new words to its Unabridged dictionary

Bad news, world: Jeggings are here to stay.

At least for now, the "legging that is designed to resemble a tight-fitting pair of denim jeans" has been defined and included in the new edition of the Merriam-Webster Unabridged Dictionary, The Washington Post reports.

Also among the more than 1,700 new entries: "photobomb" ("to move into the frame of a photograph as it is being taken as a joke or prank") and "NSFW" ("not safe for work; used to warn someone that a website, email attachment, etc., is not suitable for viewing at most places of employment"). Other additions include techy terms like "clickbait," "meme," and "emoji," and, a bit more randomly, "colossal squid."
