image for New Words Added To Dictionary in 2009 New words for the dictionary are listed here.

Each year, several new words are recognized and added to various editions of English language dictionaries. Other words get an additional meaning and have this new definition added. 2009 was no different than any other, as new definitions for existing words such as "twitter" and "tweet" entered common usage.

Many other words, however, are much more obscure. Following is a list of words that will be added to 2010 dictionary editions. Most of these deal with groups:

The accepted definition for a large group of cattle is a "herd." A group of geese is called a "gaggle." This year, the Oversight Committee For English Language created the following group names:

A group of prostitutes is a skaggle
A group of old women is a baggle
A group of old women who are braless is a saggle
A group of tongles is a waggle
A group of women who do not swallow is a gaggle
A group of used tampons is a raggle
A group of knotted ropes is a snaggle
A group of men discussing their sexual exploits is a braggle
A group of women with breast implants is a booble
A group of young women who are braless is a jiggle
A group of young women who are topless is a tittle
A group of people with swine flu is a piggle
A group of people with artificial hair is a wiggle
A group of young men without prom dates is a staggle
A group of homeless men washing car windows for coins is a beggle
A group of people at a beer party is a keggle
