Tags: , , ,

“Retweet ‘is the term used to pass a message on Twitter. 
New edition of the dictionary brings 400 new words such as ‘cyberbullying’.

The words “retweet” and “cyberbullying” were published in the latest edition of the Oxford English Dictionary. The 12th edition of the publication contains 400 new words, among the 240,000 that make up the dictionary.Some of these new terms were removed from the internet and social networks. In addition to “retweet” (pass a message on Twitter) and “cyberbullying” (to use the Internet to intimidate), the Oxford dictionary has added the term “sexting” (send sexual messages by phone). The new terms were entered into a database of two billion words pulled from Web sites and texts to prove their omnipresence.“The dictionary has always been thus produced. We took all possible evidence to prove that there is only a small group of people who are using a particular term, “said Angus Stevenson, editor of the dictionary. In August is celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Oxford Dictionary “Concise”, a version smaller and derived from the official publication. To celebrate the anniversary, the 12th edition of the dictionary was published with over 240 000 words.

    There are definitely a variety of particulars like that to take into consideration. That could be a great point to carry up. I offer the thoughts above as common inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you convey up where the most important factor will probably be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if greatest practices have emerged around things like that, but I’m certain that your job is clearly identified as a good game.
