Oxford Dictionary Adds On

The folks at the Oxford Online Dictionary have added some very interesting words to the official English list.

Included this time around: “throwing shade,” “hot mess,” “hate-watch” and “live-tweeting.” Sounds like the Oxford editors have been watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians, doesn’t it?

Is this the desecration of the English language? Is this Oxford bowing to the pressure to be hip and different? Or is Oxford simply catching up to the world in which we live?

You decide. And whatever you decide, it will be amazeballs.
