Merriam Gets Creative

Let’s be honest, dictionaries love being creative sometimes.

I remember the time when Filipina was defined as: Domestic Helper.

I was too young to remember which specific dictionary did that but that happened around late 80s early 90s.

I don’t like how late I am in reacting about this.

Irregardless! This totally took me by surprise!
