The Oxford English Dictionary has introduced a number of new tech terms and pieces of text speak to its all-encompassing definition of words.
The Telegraph lists the various new terms which have made the ranks of the OED, including LOL (as in Laugh Out Loud, of course) and OMG (as in Oh My God, it’s Peaches Geldof someone turn the telly off).
Other famous acronyms to appear include IMHO (In My Humble Opinion) and FYI (For Your Information).
Dotbomb is one of the new tech terms covered, which is slang for an Internet company which has gone down the tubes. Ego-surfing is now also in the OED, which is defined as searching for yourself online.
Perhaps the most interesting one, however, is the first symbol to enter the dictionary – the heart symbol. This is listed under H for heart, unsurprisingly, and is defined as a verb meaning to love.
There are some 45,000 added definitions in the latest online version of the Oxford English Dictionary.
