SF Gate: Dictionary.com adds ‘kompromat,’ ‘fake news,’ and more to online database

San Francisco Gate: Dictionary.com adds ‘kompromat,’ ‘fake news,’ and more to online database. “The new and extended words and phrases are primarily politically-leaning. ‘Alt-right,’ for example, now has a longer definition to reflect usage guidelines by the Associated Press and other publications. ‘Far’ also has an added definition to reflect the word’s use in a political context (like, for instance, the ‘far left’ or ‘far right’).”
