I’m with Eileen. Texting lingo such as “BFF” should not be included in the Oxford English Dictionary.
I’m not a big fan of acronyms, or abbreviations, or WYCT (whatever you call them). So you can imagine my dismay when I recently read a headline that said the New Oxford American Dictionary had added “BFF” to this year’s edition of the dictionary.
For those of you old-schoolers who actually speak using complete words, BFF stands for “best friend forever.” Kind of feels like the writing staff of “Hannah Montana” just picked up and moved their sparkly markers over to the New Oxford American Dictionary to work, if you ask me.
