New Tech Words In Oxford University Press Dictionary

from the a-trend... dept

A few weeks ago we had an article about how the Oxford English Dictionary had added some technology based words to their dictionary (and other cultural words like “Doh!”). Now, their smaller publication, the Concise Oxford Dictionary has followed suit. They’re adding words like I-mode, MP3, e-book, and mockumentary. They also have an appendix of text messaging short hand such as “OIC” (oh, I see) and a list of emoticons.
