Words like "blook" and "hoodie" Officially Added to English

The Guardian reports on words such as “blook,” “vlog,” “muffin top,” “hoodie,” and “silver” being officially added to the English language according to the Collins dictionary. More commentary here.

As a writer, I say, let the language continue to evolve.

Back in March, the OED added these words and more as part of its quarterly online update:

asswipe, n.
bimbette, n.
C-section, n. (why did it take so long?)
fuck-off, n. (ditto)
irritainment, n. (I’m going to try to use this one)
ixnay, v.
Tae-Bo, n. (about 5 years too late)
tweener, n.
undelete, v.
