The Dictionary Just Got A Whole Lot Sassier!

Oxford Dictionary Adds New Words

Our beloved book of the English word just made room for 400 new additions.

Some of the words chosen to reside among 'reciprocity' and 'tenacious' are:

Noob — That's the noob at work. Nobody really knows what his story is.

Woot — I defeated the dark prince! w00t!

Sexting — Didn't that Dateline guy get caught sexting?

Retweet — LOLz! I'm gonna retweet this cuz it's sooo funny!

Mankini –If you've got it, flaunt it in that mankini!

The Oxford English Dictionary has also written new meanings for the words 'follower' and 'friend.'

We're sure you already know what those are, and if you don't, there's no more excuses! Get with it!

What do U think of the new additions?

    rofl, noob was a must!. Now its official!.



  2. 2

    The fact that some of those made it into the Dictionary is a testament to how young and completely stupid the current staff are over at Oxford. etc. There is an Urban Dictionary for terms that hack the shit out of our great language. Making them legitimate, now, is an embarrassment to society.



  3. 3

    sounds like the same dictionary from 1984 newspeak



  4. 4

    Shakespeare must be doing backflips in his grave.



  5. 5

    The only addition that I understand them making was "sexting" and that's because it is commonly stated in newscasts and official proceedings (such as divorce papers). This term is something that needs to be defined for that reason. The other additions are stupid. @BlueDuck : I couldn't agree more.
