The Merriam-Webster Dictionary just got a little more hip.

While "Bad and Boujee" didn't make the cut for the new words and terms added to its lengthy pages this time around, more than 1,000 other words and phrases did, with side-eye, humblebrag, and photobomb all landing in its pages.

The company announced the words that it added Tuesday, having a little fun with the news by posting GIFs and definitions for some of the new additions on its Twitter page.

Like "shade", which the dictionary defines as "a subtle, sneering expression of contempt for or disgust with someone—sometimes verbal, and sometimes not."

Face palm is also on the list, defined as, "to cover one's face with the hand as an expression of embarrassment, dismay, or exasperation."

They also added ghost as a verb, because if someone ever ghosts you, you need to know exactly what went down.

Binge-watching, as well as ginger as a term for redheads, FLOTUS, SCOTUS, and many more were also added to the list. Take a peek at all of the new additions to the dictionary on Merriam Webster's website.
