Thank you Miley Cyrus for helping get “twerk” into the dictionary…LOL!!

TWERK is defined in the Oxford Dictionary Online as a “dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance.”

Oxford University Press announced Wednesday the latest update to its free online dictionary of current English. Keeping up with Internet speech, colloquial words like “selfie,” “twerk,” “phablet,” “emoji,” “TL;DR” and “srsly” have been added to the ODO.
