Oxford Dictionary Adds New Entries Including 'Vaping' and 'Binge-Watch'
Britain's Oxford University Press is adding words and entries to its online Oxford Dictionaries including "vaping," "listicle" and "Paleo diet." Around 150 million English words are tracked by editors online, in newspapers, and used in other sources keeping track of which ones are used enough to merit a dictionary entry. Many new entries are abbreviations indicating people's changing media and the prevalence of the Internet. "Vaping" describes the act of inhaling smokeless nicotine vapor using e-cigarettes.
