BBM Now a Word in Collins English Dictionary


In an effort to remain a relevant yardstick for English vocabulary, Collins English Dictionary has added BBM to it’s list of words.

Collins says that the cultural influences that led to the addition are all of BBM’s mentions in contemporary music as well as when Olympic gold medal sprint Usain Bolt mentioned that he would be contacting his friends and family via BBM in an interview after his world record 100 meter sprint. “All I gotta do is thank a few people on my BBM with my congrats and that’s pretty much it”

Known for promoting their dictionary services by adding slang to their word list, (I’m looking at you Bootylicious) their dictionary is available in various expensive flavours on Amazon.
