The newest word in the Oxford Dictionary is...

... Bling-bling.

Yes, the word that was once hip-hop jargon is now slang, and is in the oh-so-proper Oxford English Dictionary.

The article...

I wonder if we can use it in scrabble now?

If this keeps up there will be some interesting words for 'marijuana' and 'woman' in the next edition of the Oxford Theasaurus...
What's easier to believe: that a guy was born without sex in the manner of several Greek demigods and grew up to be able to transmute liquids and alter his body density yet couldn't escape government execution, or that three freemasons in a vehicle made with aluminum foil in an era before digital technology escaped our atmosphere, landing on the moon, broadcasted from there, and then flew back without burning up?

It's like putrefaction and putrefication. Both are valid! Soon, "bling-bling" and "cheese" will fall behind some other term.

Soon like last week?

Has anyone read The Professor and the Madman about the making of the OED? It's fascinating. They wait for at least five years before a new word qualifies. I guess bling-bling has been around since '99...
There's so many words in that sucka! And so many that haven't been used for ages. I have the "shorter" version. It has everything you could ever think of and more.
I hold with those that favor fire.

"Bling-bling" will join a host of other hip-hop words: "jiggy," "bootylicious," "breakbeat," "dope," and "phat."

Good god!

I never was all about the Bling-Bling anyway.

Once a word goes into the Oxford English Dictionary, it never comes out. Ever. "Bling-bling" will join a host of other hip-hop words: "jiggy," "bootylicious," "breakbeat," "dope," and "phat."
This planet sucks, I want a new one.

As long as they put that picture of Mr. T beside the definition, I'm alright with it.

Hey Meridae'n...There is no way anyone could bust out bling-bling in a Scrabble game. Or is there? Is the hyphen included? Either way it wouldn't be worth scrapple, the plate values of B,L,I,N,G don't add up to much...maybe if you hooked up with a triple word score or something...I don't know?

Ebonics is accepted in schools as a legitimate form of dialect...so I guess it should be included...

Who the hell is reading the dictionary besides me anyway??!!
When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. HST
