“LBD” Is Added To The Oxford Dictionary of English

Posted on: August 21, 2010

Every woman should have at least one… Audrey Hepburn made them famous… but now the LBD (short for Little Black Dress) has officially made it!
 
The abbreviation is one of more than 2,000 new words and phrases added to the third edition of the Oxford Dictionary of English.
 
Careful! Not to be confused with the Oxford English Dictionary… The  Oxford Dictionary of English uses a ‘word bank’ that is continually updated, making it fully based on evidence of how language is really used.
 
So–it’s not the real dictionary but it’s the dictionary of the way we use the English language in the real world!?! I am confused!!

How very fashionable of them!
