‘Twerking’ Among The New Additions To Oxford Dictionary

Thanks to Miley Cyrus‘ dancing on the MTV VMA’s this past Sunday night, the term twerking has been catapulted to mainstream use. Twerking describes a type of dancing that most dads wish their daughters would not take part in. The word itself has been around for some time and is now among the latest list of words that will soon be added to the Oxford Dictionary.

That though is not the only word they’re adding to the new edition, also being added are:
selfie
buzzworthy
fauxhawk
jorts

The dictionary is also adding a key group of abbreviations that will be acceptable as words.

I can say that I’ve been using a couple of these words for a while now. If you could add one word to the dictionary from East Texas, what would that word or phrase be? Give me your suggestion in the comment section below.
