Yet again the Oxford English Dictionary (Online) proves how totally radical it is, incorporating a bunch of new words that the cool kids have been saying long enough to have stopped saying. The 35 new words added this week include
"baby bump," "bestie," "bucket list," "coconut water," "lappy" (your laptop), "lifehack," "man cave," "meep," "nekkid," "NSFW,"'roid," "Twittersphere," "unfollow," and "ZOMG." Here's the definition of that last one:

ZOMG

(used especially on electronic message boards as a sarcastic comment on an inexperienced or overenthusiastic poster)

oh my God!:ZOMG! !

I finally managed to reformat the file the airport was hot and big, but there was really nothing that made me stop and think ZOMG FOREIGN COUNTRY!

So long as "bdellatomy" survives, the language lives.  Voice bloggers would do well to find modern applications for the word; opportunities abound.
