Eminem's "Stan" Officially Added To Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Two years ago the word “Stan” was added to the Oxford English Dictionary and now it’s been added to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary.

Eminem’s song “Stan” is about an overly obsessed fan who gets angry when his favorite artists, Eminem, doesn’t write him back. Merriam-Webster announced that they added over 630 words to the dictionary.

They classified “Stan” as a verb and a noun. As a noun, it means "an extremely or excessively enthusiastic and devoted fan." As a verb, the word means, “to exhibit fandom to an extreme or excessive degree: to be an extremely devoted and enthusiastic fan of someone or something.”

Don't be a stan!
