    Yes, but I must confess one thing, I am not a person who keeps himself up-to-date with regard to whats going on in the fashion world, so I had to search for what the heck 'jeggings' mean. :eek:

    Hot on the heels of Oxford additions, Chambers Dictionary has been updated as well, and amongst the new words included are:

    - paywall
    - tweet
    - quantitative easing (I wonder if the Fed would launch QE3 to mark this occasion :D )
    - man flu
    - crowed sourcing
    - staycation
    - kakistocracy
    - Neet
    - OMG & BFF
    - TARP (must have made lots of bankers really happy ;) )
