Back in March, the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) made some interesting updates. According to The Huffington Post, not only did they add LOL and OMG, but they also added ♥. Another favorite was the term La-La Land, used in the definition for Los Angeles.

Now, the Concise OED just released its newest updates, The Daily Mirror reported. They include the word made famous by Sash Baron Cohen's "Borat": Mankini (see NSFW photo), as well as jeggings (leggings that look like jeans) and sexting (sending sexual text messages).

Gizmodo stated that the latest edition holds 66,500 words, as opposed to the original's 38,000. One might think that, soon enough, there will not even be a need for urbandictionary.com.
