These Words Were Added To the Dictionary the Year You Were Born

Some words become a part of our collective lexicon with such zeitgeist that it's hard to believe there was ever a time when they weren't part of the English language. And some are so definitive of an era that simply seeing them listed next to a year immediately brings you back to that time and a place — and the movies and songs that then dominated pop culture. Thanks to Merriam-Webster's new Time Traveler, now we can all travel back to a specific year with a single click and a host of dictionary entries definitive of the year they were made official.
