Merriam-Webster is updating its dictionary releasing more than 250 new words and definitions. The list includes several words that add to the current political climate. One word is "troll." It once meant a giant who roamed in Scandinavian folklore, but now Webster says the new definition is to "antagonize (others) online by deliberately posting inflammatory, irrelevant, or offensive comments or other disruptive content."
And then there's "dog whistle." It was first meant as a whistle for dogs inaudible to humans. Now, it's new political twist is "an expression or statement that has a secondary meaning intended to be understood only by a particular group of people."
