The Oxford Dictionary recently added 1,200 words and phrases to its lexicon. Some of them are recent news makers and there are some that have been in the vernacular for ages that are just now coming around to getting in the dictionary.

There are a few surprises as well, so don’t “have a cow.”

According to Red Alert Politics, some of the terms among the “epic” new additions are newsmakers like “fiscal cliff”, “debt trap”, and “big data”.

A few that you’d think would have been added long ago and just now making it in are phrases like “binge drinking”, “the silent treatment”, and “to have a cow.”

Which phrases do you want to see removed from the Dictionary? Let us know in the comments below.
