Transcript.

Today's word is a new entry added to the 2014 copyright of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary. It's also new in the Online Dictionary at Merriam-Webster.com.

Steampunk, written as one word, is a noun that means science fiction dealing with 19th-century societies dominated by historical or imagined steam-powered technology. Here is the word used in a sentence by Ruth La Ferla in the New York Times.

"It is also the vision of steampunk, a subculture that is the aesthetic expression of a time-traveling fantasy world, one that embraces music, film, design and now fashion, all inspired by the extravagantly inventive age of dirigibles and steam locomotives, brass diving bells and jar-shaped protosubmarines."

The science-fiction author K. W. Jeter is credited with coining the term "steampunk" in 1987 to describe a wave of fantasy novels set in Victorian times and celebrating the technology of the era, much of which was powered by steam as he wrote: "I think Victorian fantasies are going to be the next big thing, as long as we can come up with a fitting collective term for Tim Powers, James Blaylock and myself." In both name and subject, "steampunk" is an antithesis to "cyberpunk," a genre often noted for featuring computerized, futuristic, or unearthly settings. The popularity of steampunk has since carried over to motion pictures, fashion, and even things like restaurant décor.
