"STAN" Has Officially Been Added To The Merriam-Webster Dictionary


'On Tuesday, Merriam-Webster took steps to commemorate the song’s enduring pop cultural legacy by announcing that “stan” is one of the 640 new words they had added to their database. According to the dictionary maker, the word can be used as both a noun and a verb. As a noun, Stan means “an extremely or excessively enthusiastic and devoted fan.” As a verb, it means, “to exhibit fandom to an extreme or excessive degree: to be an extremely devoted and enthusiastic fan of someone or something.”

Merriam-Webster’s decision comes two years after the Oxford English Dictionary added the word to their official database.' - via UPROXX
