‘Unfollow,’ ‘NSFW’ And ‘ZOMG’ Added To Oxford Dictionary

Reports Today:

The Oxford Dictionaries Online, one of the authorities on the English language, has once again taken steps to acknowledge how our obsession with the Internet is gradually altering our vocabularies — by adding things such as “NSFW,” “ZOMG,” “newb,” and “Twittersphere” to its virtual pages.

The folks behind these additions explain that the “world of computers and social networking continues to be a major influence on the English language” and so continual edits of reference texts are necessary.

Coincidentally, I tend to unfollow anyone who uses “ZOMG” in any form. So there.
