Let's twerk and then we can take selfies on my phablet . . . Lost? Me too. These are just some of the new terms included in an update of the Oxford English Dictionary online.
Twerk is the one word you may recognise as it has made headlines across the globe in the last few days. It's the term used to describe the raunchy dancing performed by Miley Cyrus at the MTV VMA Music awards (pictured below).
For those of you who managed to miss the show, Cyrus wriggled, writhed and shook her backside in a vigorous and spirited manner. Some might say to the point of almost being X-rated.
