Great coverage for the Oxford English Dictionary, with the news that words like selfie, twerk, street food and geek chic have made it into the online dictionary.

Then again, new words are usually chosen based on increased usage, so hard to argue with it.
I’m really glad that digital detox has made it onto the list, too.
Twerk(ing) is having a massive moment right now, thanks to Miley Cyrus, butt Timbaland and hip hop brought this in years ago.
