Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary is all-a-Twitter about the 900 new additions to the ninth edition to its app, including 170 words relating to the digital realm and six relating to microblogging website Twitter, including the infamous words "Twitterati" and "tweetup".
The Oxford Dictionary, categorising and helping to define words since 1948, has again incorporated many more modern words into its lexicon.
So, if you want to "retweet" a "selfie" with a "phablet" and put it in a "meme" so you can share it in the "Twitterverse", well now the Oxford team knows exactly what you're talking about. And like it or not, these words are also now an official part of the English language.
So the next time somebody gives you a puzzled look next time you say TTFN, you can now legitimately tell them to check the dictionary... or the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary app, at least.
Some new inclusions to the app:
The app is currently available on iOs and Android.
