Merriam-Webster announced one hundred new words just added to the dictionary...

Respectful of the trademark, Merriam-Webster lowercases the entry but maintains the capitalization while explaining that the verb means "to use the Google search engine" to retrieve online information.
"We're defining a trademark as a verb, just like we did with the word xerox," Morse said.
Among the other words added were unibrow, bling, and drama queen.  Huh -- surprised that last one wasn't already in the book, given pervasiveness.
