New Words Added To The Dictionary

Either we’re evolving…or just giving up. Oxford has just released new words that have been added to the dictionary this month. However, I think most of them are what could be considered, “buzzwords.”

Here are just a few:

  • Tweet
  • Flashmob
  • Geekery
  • Slow Jam (Thank you, Jimmy Fallon!)
  • Crowdsourcing

In addition to new words, Oxford also added new “sub-entries” and “new senses.”

I feel like if you can get a word to trend on Twitter, you can get it in the dictionary. Speaking of that…I wonder if “facepalm” has been added.
