MUST SEE: Merriam-Webster just added 840 new words


(CNN)- Next time someone tells you “hangry” isn’t a word, you can tell them to check the dictionary because Merriam-Webster just added over 840 new words and definitions and that’s one of them.

Here are a few more words that made the cut. Hophead, that is a beer enthusiast. Flight, a selection of alcoholic drinks. Bingeable, having multiple episodes or parts that can be watched in rapid succession. Time suck, an activity that uses a lot of time that might be better spent elsewhere.
