The normative dictionary of the two preeminent dictionaries of American English is now out in a fifth edition.

It has Semitic roots as well as Indo-European roots. I don't know when that started. I don't remember them in the fourth edition, but they are there.

The word 'supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' or a variation on it is not in the word list.
