The age of the Internet has certainly changed many things, and apart from the convenience of online banking and transactions, it makes perfect sense for Internet lexicon to spill into everyday speech and words, and among the three of the more famous shoutouts include LOL, OMG and FYI – and they have gained a place in the online Oxford English Dictionary in its March 2011 release. Just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade or so, OMG is an acronym for “Oh my God,” while LOL means “laugh out loud” with FYI being “for your information.” These abbreviations will have company such as TMI (too much information) and BFF (best friends forever). We do wonder what future editions will hold, and how else the English language is going to evolve from here.
