That perfect pinnacle of punctuation, definition and the English language, The Concise Oxford English Dictionary has added some new words to it’s pages.  Working hard to stay ahead of the English languages constantly changing verbiage, the dictionary will now include words like, “sexting”, “woot”, “domestic goddess”, “cougar”, and “cyberbullying“.

First published in 1911, the Oxford Concise Dictionary unlike it’s “bigger” companion The Oxford English Dictionary, was compiled to include the slang and colloquialism of the day.
