"Selfie" Beats Out "Twerk" For Word Of The Year!!

Filed under: Etc.DicktionaryGIFs

selfie

What an honor!!

While Miley Cyrus started the twerk movement this year and brought the dance craze along with the world into every household around the world, it seems as if that wasn't enough for "twerk" to be declared the word of the year!

The people at Oxford Dictionary chose the word "selfie" to bestow the honor of being the International Word of the Year!

Although there were a number of terminologies added to the Oxford Dictionary this year, one of the requirements for a word to be considered Word of the Year is that it has to "attract a great deal of interest during the year to date."

Well, we think the word "selfie" has a number of celebrities to thank, starting with Kim Kardashian who set the whole world abuzz with her infamous post-baby selfie!

The world "Selfie" is defined as:

A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media.

The word first started gaining momentum in 2002 and it just became a part of everyone's every day vocabulary since then!

We wonder how many times the word "selfie" is used in a day!

Everyone should take a selfie in honor of the word today!

The Oxford Dictionary Gets Vajazzled

vajazzle-is-added-to-the-oxford-dictionary.jpg

If only this had come up on our high school vocab tests!

The Oxford Dictionary has officially added "vajazzle"to the big book of words.

The official definition is:

"vajazzle, v.: adorn the pubic area (of a woman) with crystals, glitter, or other decoration."

Come on, Oxford! The technical term is clitter. Duh.

Now that sparkly vaginas have earned themselves a spot in the dictionary, it only makes sense that penazzling would be next, right?

The word "muffin top" is no longer the top portion of a muffin!

On Thursday a list of changes made to the Oxford English Dictionary were released and the definition for muffin top was one of them.

The book of words now officially recognizes the word as "a protuberance of flesh above the waistband of a tight pair of trousers".

LOLz!

What a fancy way to describe fat!
