'Woot' enters Oxford English Dictionary

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
"Woot" has officially been added to the Oxford English Dictionary. Was there a Kentucky connection?
Have you ever wondered what it takes to make the dictionary? Odds are you probably haven't. But, if you have, the answer may be to make the NCAA softball super regionals for the first time in program history. That's what the Kentucky softball team did last year, fueled in part by their theme, "woots and dubs." Woots symbolized a moral victory for the team led by head coach Rachel Lawson. Well, I guess the Oxford English Dictionary has some Kentucky fans writing because "woot" is now an official word:

"woot: used to express elation, enthusiasm, or triumph (especially in electronic communication)"

Now before you say it, yes, don't worry, we do realize "woot" was already a term commonly used before the Kentucky softball team used it as a part of their favorite phrase. But it's still fun to think the Big Blue Nation has taken over our dictionaries. Will "3 goggles" be next?
