[if it's in the dictionary, it must be real]

The good folks over at Merriam-Webter — you know, the people who decide what's American English — have revealed some new words for 2006, among them polyamory, which they define as "the state or practice of having more than one open romantic relationship at a time." Not a bad job for a first go at it, though I'm sure someone somewhere will be writing a furious post to a message board insisting polyamory is something else.

Other excellent new entries include drama queen, manga and ollie.
