Oxford English Dictionary

The fifth edition of the shorter Oxford English Dictionary has just been launched and computer words like buggy, uninstall and grep - among others - have finally made it in to mainstream English. But does that really mean we can use the word grep in a sentence and be understood? We doubt it somehow! Sci-fi terms also made it onto the lexicon, including Jedi, Klingon and TARDIS!
so, Grep finally made it into the dictionary :D

What other words do XP-Erience members think should be officially added to the english language / dictionary ?
(sensible things only, and most swear words are already in there :p )

if XPerience made it into the dictionary it would be one of the greatest words in there, standing proud alongside 'peon' :D
