I guess we have Miley to thank for this.
The Oxford Dictionary, which began publishing in 1857, announced the word “twerking” would be added as a listing during its quarterly update.
According to Oxford Dictionary the word “twerk” (I can’t believe this is really a thing) means to dance “in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance.”
Stranger things have happened. Shortly after Destiny’s Child smash hit “Bootylicious,” The Oxford Dictionary also added the word to its listings. So with that said, this makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?
