ZOMG! Oxford Dictionaries Online Debuts Official List of New Words

The Oxford Dictionaries Online have debuted a list of new words that now merit official definition. Following the recent trend in additions to the dictionary many of the words on the new list have their roots in technology or social media. Among the newly included is ZOMG: meaning “oh my God, especially on electronic message boards as a sarcastic comment on an inexperienced or overenthusiastic poster.”

Other additions to the dictionary that are well known to internet users include: infographic, cyber monday, lifehack, network neutrality, overshare, paperless, social graph, twittersphere, permalink, and unfollow. But for those who are newbs to these words, grab your lappy and head over to the Oxford Dictionaries Online where you can read the full list.
