'Twerking' and 'selfie' added to Oxford dictionary

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-23861702

Twerking, the raunchy dance move performed by Miley Cyrus at the MTV VMAs is among the new words added to the Oxford Dictionary of English.
Oxford Dictionaries Online said the word, borrowed from hip hop culture, had become increasingly visible in the past 12 months.
Other words such as omnishambles and selfie also made their debut in the dictionary's quarterly online update.

pretty much the people at the Oxford Dictionary added this b/c it was relevant enough to our culture and our times.

Selfie should not be added. Twerking, sure.

Eh, I can see why they added it. Recently I been using the word "selfie" a lot. Even though it's annoying.

Actually, these words shouldn't be added at all, unless they're still in use twenty years later.

Re: 'Twerking' and 'selfie' added to Oxford dictionary

They might as well add "planking" while they're at it; why?

Planking, twerking, and selfies are all fads. They're going to become irrelevant in the next few years.

Re: 'Twerking' and 'selfie' added to Oxford dictionary

Maybe twerking will be a fad and become irrelevant, but for some reason I don't see that happening with "selfie". As long as people have phones, I doubt it will disappear. People constantly take pics of themselves. Especially with the on going relevance of social networking.

The friendzone idea is based solely on the assumption that if you're nice to somebody you deserve sex.
It's another way of saying neo-chivalry.

getting told by a girl that they just want to be friends makes me not euphoric

Re: 'Twerking' and 'selfie' added to Oxford dictionary

Re-tweet and planking were added a while ago actually to the Webster's dictionary. Like 2 years ago. (as random as it may be, I only bring those two up because they were in the same article I read at the time)

The English language I really don't care about as far as how its defined in a book. We're adapting to all vocabulary whether we use it or not. I don't need it in a dictionary to understand what it means obviously.

Is it retarded? Of course. But there's nothing really meant to be great about the teenage scene and media for our era. It'll probably just get worst as we get older. Already has for me.

Planking is a fucking excersize you dolt.
It SHOULD be a word.

Just because dipshits did it as a meme doesn't mean that's what it started as.
I know this as my wrestling coach made me fucking do them when I was going 2 hard. Kinda redundant.

So by that logic burpees should be added to the dictionary too? Every spoken word isn't in the dictionary; and the fact that it took the pictures to get it into the dictionary is what you're missing.

Yeah infact it fuckin' should.
The Oxford Dictionary is full of asinine shit anyway.
