New Words Coming To the Oxford Dictionary

Britain's Oxford University Press said that it's adding some new words to its online Oxford Dictionaries to reflect new language trends. Once every few months, editors for the site who track and analyze some 150 million English words decide which are being used so widely that they deserve a dictionary entry. However, this doesn't mean they'll become permanent additions to the English language, and they may not make it into the more traditional Oxford English Dictionary. Among the new words being added:
  • vaping -- inhaling nicotine vapor using e-cigarettes
  • listicle -- Internet article in the form of a number of bullet-pointed list
  • live-tweet -- posting comments about an event on Twitter as it's taking place
  • binge-watch -- viewing multiple episodes of TV shows in a row
  • Paleo diet -- a diet based on ancient man's presumed diet of wild plants and animals
