The word "wiki" is among several new entries this month in the Oxford English Dictionary. Other newcomers include terms for annoying entertainment, men's underwear and unintelligent though attractive women. Due to its principle of collaboration, the OED itself may been seen to resemble a wiki.


Interesting article, worth a read. The last word mentioned above gave me a laugh. :P

It's nice to see some relatively newly-coined words making its way into the history of the English language.
