If You Haven't Heard

Bootylicious has been added to the OED.

Also, a trailer for Matrix: Revolutions is out.

  1. Eh, not the OED, exactly:Another trove of new words is the Internet, which added "cyberslacker," "egosurf" and "hacktivist" to the dictionary, which concentrates on the living language and is separate from the more established and multi-volume Oxford English Dictionary.Oxford publishes over 20 print dictionaries (plus CD-ROM editions of most of them), including the "Oxford Dictionary of Current English", which is about to be updated to its 4th edition. Given that it's a dictionary of "current" English specifically, CNN's news isn't so surprising. Unfortunately, CNN buried their disclaimer way down in the article and wrote a damned misleading headline.
