So far in this year 2016, the Oxford English dictionary have been updated 4 times (once for each quarter). According to daliymail.co.uk, A total of 1, 200 new words have been added to the numerous already existing. Some of the words added centres around internet activity, sexuality and a special tribute Roald Dahl. It will also interest you to know that the word of the year 2016 is xenophobia.

Listing the 1,200 words will be a tedious job but here are ten words that caught my attention. The new words included in the dictionary are;

1. YOLO: an acronym for You only live Once


2. Gender-fluid:not clearly or wholly male or female, unfixed gender identity
