The experts at Oxford Dictionaries Online explain that the initialisms added to the dictionary are “noteworthy” and even happen to be “found outside of electronic contexts” at times.
Other additions include “March 24, 2011”, defined as the day that human language died.
The English language needs to stop evolving, this is not right. How dare language attempt to adjust to modern society like its been doing since the beginning of time.
Slang’s been included in the dictionary for centuries. It’s nothing new, I’m really not surprised. Slang actually changes pretty fast so I’m guessing the above are phrases that have stayed. I looked up a couple of the phrases from the article and they all said “informal” so don’t worry about them being in essays and job applications any time soon.
I don’t understand the heart though. When they start adding emoticons to the dictionary then I can agree that we’re going backwards.
