Tired of looking back in time? What if we do a dramatic rewind, all the way back to 1921, and not just to the Year That Shall Not Be Named?

Merriam-Webster recently celebrated words (or usages of words) that turn one hundred this year.

Some of them — "abominable snowman," "crash" (as in to show up uninvited), and "goon," to name a few — are even still used today.

Browse more words and phrases that were born in 1921 in the Words at Play blog.
