New words added to the Oxford Dictionary
The 2014 Words of the Year
It’s that time again. The time of the year in which Talking Heads gleefully anticipates what new words have been added in to the Oxford Dictionary.
The Oxford Dictionary named “vape” the Word of the Year, Collins English Dictionary picked “photo bomb”, online dictionary Merriam-Webster chose “culture” and Dictionary.com “exposure”. Although very different the expressions sum up 2014 as a year of heartbreak, hilarity and health awareness. (We took the liberty to name three Words of the Year ourselves – keep reading to find out what they are.)
