ESL English Lesson: ‘Twerk’ and ‘Selfie’ – headline new words added to Oxford Dictionaries Online
David Robinson

Recently ‘Twerk’ and ‘Selfie’ headlined new words added to the Oxford Dictionaries Online. Today’s generation of young people have created plenty of other new words. Their priority interests are technology, fashion, food and self-involvement; the ‘me, me, me’ generation! These areas are all reflected in the latest quarterly update to the online dictionary. ‘Twerk’ is a dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner. Miley Cyrus famously did a twerk at the MTV Awards. ‘Selfie’ means when you have taken a photo of yourself, usually with a smartphone or webcam.
