Lesson #245: Oxford’s New Words

The Oxford Press have released their word list for the 2010 Oxford American Dictionary.

Some of the words are relatively new, like hashtag or webisode, but some of them, like straightedge or “to heart”, date at least as far back as my high school/early college years, so I’m a bit confused as to how it has taken this long for them to make their way into Oxford’s world.

If you’re interested, you can see the list of new words here.
