‘Selfie’, ‘Twerk’ And More Being Added To The Oxford Dictionary
God help us all. The terms "selfie" and "twerk" are being added to the Oxford English Dictionary. My computer better shape the hell up, cause both of those words are still underlined with red...Keep reading to find out WHY they would put these words in the dictionary, as well as the rest of the list they will be adding this year.
Oxford’s inclusion of selfie, supercut, twerking, and other neologisms was announced in a blog post in which the dictionary explained:
“Picture this. You’ve just uploaded a selfie to your favourite social media website using your phablet when your FIL (that’s your father-in-law) shares a supercut of a srsly mortifying twerking session. You immediately unlike his page because there isn’t an emoji capable of expressing your desire to vom: apols, but it’s time for a digital detox. Research by the Oxford Dictionaries team shows that these terms have been absorbed by popular culture, hence their inclusion in the latest ODO update.”
The full list of terms on which selfie and twerking appear from Oxford includes: apols
