Phishing and Podcasting enter the Oxford Dictionary



Ironic that I find this news first at barrapunto.com, but it turns out the words Phishing and Podcasting have officially entered the Oxford English dictionary. Wiki has made it as well, as have Beatbox and Europop. The writeup goes on to compare the uptake of new words in the Oxford English dictionary with that of the Real Academia (Royal Academy) (Keepers of correct Spanish).



Apparently rather “old” words such as hacker have not yet shown up officially there.
