Fun Fact of the Day

December 1, 2017- Did you know that a new word is added to the dictionary every TWO HOURS! How crazy is that? Between now and your lunch break, a new word will be put into the dictionary. In one year, FOUR THOUSAND new words are added!

Here are a few words that were added in 2017:

“Seussian”- This is by far my favourite word that was added this year. It means of, or relating to the works of Dr. Seuss.
