Nearly 100 Words Added to the Dictionary–Including “QR Code”

Attention, spelling bee contestants: the American Heritage Dictionary has just added nearly 100 new words to its latest edition. Among the newbies are “QR Code” (the pixelated box you can scan), “sharrow” (the symbol for a shared car-bike lane) and both Flerovium and Livermorium, two new elements. No word if either spell-check or autocorrect will be catching up any time soon. [CBS Philly]
