Attention, Dictionary Fans

Yes, there are such things as dictionary fans.  Some people love dictionaries, and I’m one of ‘em. It’s not all that often you hear dictionary news, but we’ve got some now.  The OED has just released its quarterly update and since this month marks the 100th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s birthday, the new additions include a few tips of the hat in his direction, i.e., splendiferous, human bean, and Dahlesque.

A couple of non-Dahl-isms include YOLO and yogalates.  Now that they’re in the OED, feel free to use them as you please.
