YOLO Added to Oxford Dictionary

Oxford Online Dictionary Adds Ridiculous New Words, Because YOLO

We're not ones to judge anyone for using words like YOLO, FML, or SMH. Wait, are those actual words? Now they are, according to the Oxford Online Dictionary, which added a slew of new entries to its website. (In case you didn't know, they mean "You Only Live Once," "F*ck My Life," and "Shaking My Head," respectively.)

They're just a couple of the many slang and Internet phrases that made the cut — including adorbs, binge-watch, cray, humblebrag, listicle, and clickbait. Techies will appreciate additions like responsive, fast follower, geocache, smartwatch, and tech-savvy.

ICYMI ("In Case You Missed It," another addition), here's how entries get added: "New words, senses, and phrases are added to OxfordDictionaries.com once editors have gathered enough independent evidence from a range of sources to be confident that they have widespread currency in English," explained a blog on OxfordDictionaries.com.

We're taking bets on how long it will take for emoji to take the place of words. Wait, that's already happened.

WDYT ("What Do You Think")? Yep, that's another new addition.
