New Words in OED


Some new words in the Oxford English Dictionary

  • muffin top (the roll of flesh hanging above a tight waistband)
  • OMG (acronym for Oh My God)
  • ego surfing (doing internet searches on yourself.

Also, for the very first time a symbol has been added – the heart. As used in the graphic to the right.

  1. Does the OED tell you how to pronounce the symbol? If so, is it Heart or Love?
