'Selfie' named word of the year

November 20, 2013

The word “Selfie” has won the title of  ‘Word of the Year’ by Oxford Dictionaries.

The editors of the famous dictionary said the word is now widely used to describe a self-portrait photograph.

The Oxford Dictionaries define a selfie as “a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically with a smartphone”.

The word first appeared in 2002 when it was used in an Australian online forum, according to Oxford Dictionaries.
