Word Up: New Terms Added to Dictionary; Dolphins Talking?

RUSSIA - A language never stops evolving. That's why the Oxford English Dictionary never stops growing. 1,200 additions were made just this year! Some of the most popular add-ons include the now famous acronym “YOLO” which of course stands for You Only Live Once.

If your idea of living involves consuming adult beverages then you`ll be happy to know that “kegerator” is now officially a part of our vocabulary. The patriotic among us will surely approve of the term "`Merica" getting its own spot in the dictionary.

Even “moobs”, a description for male boobs, is now within the rules. Great timing seeing that the term “gender-fluid” is now usable as well.

Some other off-the-wall additions are “Oompa Loompa”, “scrumdiddlyumptious” and “fuhgeddaboudit”.

We humans aren`t the only ones showing off our use of language. According to a Russian researcher, two adult Black Sea bottlenose dolphins have been taped having a conversation. Scientists say the dolphins may have formed words and sentences with a series of pulses.

More research will need to be done before it can be certain that the dolphins are chatting. Who knows, maybe these guys have a dictionary all their own?
