We Americans are getting stupider — or smarter — by the minute, and for good reason, too. Oxford English Dictionary just added some new words to its circulation, including the “heart” symbol, OMG, and LOL. Can you say WTF?
FYI (for your information), here are the new words and what they mean:
OMG = Oh my god
LOL = Laughing out loud
IMHO = In my humble opinion
❤ = love, as in I “heart” the new words
BFF = best friends forever
The addition of these new words were adopted into our English language because the character limits in texts and tweets (referring to Twitter) affected the way we speak.
