The board game’s dictionary needed updating because slang usage has increased dramatically. “Dictionaries have always included formal and informal English, but it used to be hard to find printed evidence of the use of slang words,” commented Collins’ Helen Newstead, who helped compile the new Scrabble dictionary. “Now people use slang in social media posts, tweets, blogs, comments, text messages – you name it – so there’s a host of evidence for informal varieties of English that simply didn’t exist before.”
