Zynga has announced that global superstar Dolly Parton, will contribute her own newly-coined word as “Word Of The Day” for Words With Friends: Songteller.

She is a source of inspiration, joy and comfort for people around the world, of all ages, and from every walk of life,” said Bernard Kim, President of Publishing for Zynga. “While there is no one phrase that can define this one-of-a-kind icon, we’re honored to add Dolly’s own word, Songteller, to our dictionary to celebrate her illustrious, distinctive life.”
