More Than 40 New Words Added to the Online Oxford Dictionary
Britain's University Press has made some additions that we all better get used to. And most of them have their roots in new media. So if you've ever viewed multiple episodes of the same series in a single night or clicked on a short, numbered article online, then "binge-watch" and "listicle" are perfect for you.
More recently validated phrases: "hate-watch," for tuning into a show merely for the sake of criticizing it, and "second screen," which means using a mobile device while simultaneously viewing a movie or show. Other additions seem to be social media–driven, like "SMH," short for shaking my head, and "live-tweet," posting to Twitter constantly during an event. There are also terms that reflect fad-dieting trends, such as the "5:2 diet," or eating normally for five days and restricting calorie intake on the other two, and "Paleo Diet," a way of eating based on early human food options.
Although these words have been annexed to the online dictionary, they may not become permanent additions to the English language, according to Katherine Martin, the editor of the Oxford Dictionaries. In fact, plenty of these words probably will never be included in the traditional Oxford English Dictionary.
