It's depressing when Internet terms make it into actual, respectable dictionaries. Like, "That's part of the English language now? What have we done?"
--The people behind the Oxford English Dictionary just announced a list of new words they're adding to the dictionary . . . and you can see the Internet influence.
--They're adding tweetable, defined as, quote, "suitable for posting on the social media site Twitter."
--And they're adding the broader term social sharing. That's defined as, quote, "the practice of sharing content from a website on a social media site or application."
--The other standout is friend zone . . . which you see a lot online too. They've officially defined it as, quote, "a situation in which a platonic relationship exists between two people, one of whom has an undeclared romantic or sexual interest in the other."
--A few non-Internet terms they're adding are appletini, an apple-flavored martini . . . flexitarian, a person who is mostly vegetarian but cheats . . . and hump day, the slang term for Wednesday.
