In today's writing class, prof. Rob, introduced us 'the word of 2013' from Oxford Dictionary. That is 'SELFIE'. The following comes from Rob's homepage(http://www.eslwriting.org).
Teachers of English and vocabulary enthusiasts might be interested to learn that Oxford Dictionary has proclaimed the word of 2013. That word is SELFIE.
A SELFIE is:
a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website.
Interestingly, the Oxford blog post has a graph that tracks the usage (unit of measurement: billions) of the word SELFIE in mainstream media.
