The Oxford English Dictionary has added 4 new types of "c**t"

Hide the dictionary from your mother right now.

THE OXFORD ENGLISH Dictionary is officially OK with the C-word. Not only that, it’s getting creative with it.

OED editors have added four new versions of c**t in the dictionary’s latest update, which aims to reflect the changing ways people are using the English language.

They pretty much mean your mother can no longer read the dictionary. The new varieties are:

  • c**ted
  • c**ting
  • c**tish
  • c**ty

All of the words are adjectives. Here’s an example listing, as quoted in the Independent:

c**tish (adj, coarse slang): nasty, highly unpleasant; extremely annoying

Other new words and phrases include: bestie, beatboxer, bathroom break, and wackadoodle. The full list of words is here.
