'Simpsons' Word Is Added To The Dictionary
Another word from the 'The Simpsons' has made it into the latest edition of the Merriam-Webster dictionary.
Homer Simpon's famous catch-phrase 'D'oh' is already in there - but now the famous motto of Jebediah Springfield makes the cut this time.
The fictitious character has a motto: "A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man" - now the phrase 'embiggen' is a word featured in the dictionary.
Merriam-Webster defines the word as: "to make bigger or more expansive".
It says its first known use is from 1996.
The motto is also seen on the base of the ficticious Jebediah's statue.
