ORLANDO, Fla. – Hashtag, selfie, and geocache.

Those are just a few of the new words that will appear in the new edition of Scrabble’s official dictionary.

Publisher Merriam-Webster says the 5th edition of the game’s dictionary includes 5,000 new words.

It’s the first new edition in nearly a decade.

Other new words include:  emo, bling, mixtape, and beatbox.

The co-president of the North American Scrabble Players Association said the additions “go a long way toward bringing us closer to the language as it is currently spoken.”

The dictionary goes on sale Wednesday.
