Our panelists predict what words will appear on the newly revamped SATs.
PETER SAGAL, HOST:
Now, panel, what new words will we see on the SAT? Faith Salie.
FAITH SALIE: In an effort to preserve some old school SAT words but add some relevant pop culture, two new words are chiwetelejioforebearance and lupitanyongoprobrium.
SAGAL: Mike Birbiglia.
MIKE BIRBIGLIA: A future SAT word will be Facebook, example sentence, Remember Facebook?
SAGAL: And Adam Felber.
ADAM FELBER: The word will be perfect as in that thing that each and every one of you snowflakes are. Ah, just now take your 1,600 and go, you scamps.
CARL KASELL: Well, if any of those words appear, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!
SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Adam Felber, Faith Salie, and Mike Birbiglia. Mike, it's good to have you here.
