    Link: 15 Words You Won’t Believe Added to the Dictionary - For a book with such a prestigious title, the Oxford English Dictionary is allowing some pretty stupid words in it.

    I don`t think I`ll ever use any of those words..

    Actually, I`ve used Gaydar before. It`s a lovely word.

    Why, Oxford English Dictionary? Why? These are crap pop-culture retard words, they won`t last more than a few years.

    It`s the equivalent of putting Shamwow guy in the list of most influential people of all history. It`s wank.

    I can`t wait for the horrified looks on peoples faces when somebody pulls out "Grrrl" on an episode of Countdown.

    Oh God, the anticipation is killing me!

    Actually no, I don`t believe this. Didn`t they add bouncebackability last year?

    And even if they were adding them, it`s not like they`re going to be in the concise version of the dictionary. They`re all words that are being used somewhere by someone, so they get listed along with every other word that people have ever used. Dictionary makers don`t get a choice.

    Lets blamestorm who added these word to the dictionary!
    Actually there are quite a few people who are obsessed with Ego-surfing that i know... unfortunately.
    A - "Hey my picture shows up on Google!"
    B - "so?"
    A - "Yours doesn`t!"

    NBC`s Heroes features many evolved humans with extraordinary abilities. We believe there are superhumans among us and that the history books are full of evidence that superpowered people do exist...or do they? Famous people, are you on the list?

    lol at "frankenfood" being derogatory. I`m sure the particular food item you`re referring to will have it`s reputation tarnished and it`s ego shattered.

    Also, FU Firefox spellchecker, frankenfood is a word now.

    You forgot "chav" which, for some inexplicable reason, people in the South of England who have just discovered this word cannot pronounce. It has a long "A" for crying out loud!

    "Grrrl"

    How would you pronounce that anyway? I assumed it was "Grrr" with an "L" at the end until I realised that`s how "Girl" is pronounce.

    They should just go ahead and put conversate in there. Makes me cringe, that one. And when did the word "of" drop out of "out of the car" to make outthecar? I guess those aren`t quite the same, but I felt like ranting. I love frankenfood and cyberslacker.

    Yea... added to the Urban dictionary mabie... Nice try cracked. For a word to be entered, it has to be widely used and since `not many` of us have heard of these words (or most of them), then they can`t be widely used, hence they`re not in the official dictionary.

    Soon they`ll be adding WTF, FTW, LOLcats, purposely misspelled words that are supposed to be cute, and all that other crap. Unless they already did.

    I thought they added words once they became part of everyday language. I hadn`t even heard of half of those. Now it`s just a publicity stunt.

    They add this crap and yet most dictionaries do not even add curse words or slang. I think people need an official definition for the F word more than Grrrl or Muggle.
