Well, it's official. "Twerk" has bounced its way into the Oxford English Dictionary. This may, perhaps, be a direct cause of it's high frequency of use lately, thanks to Miley's infamous VMA's twerk, but regardless, it has become recognized by the authoritative record of the English language. Here's how they have defined it:

- Pronunciation: /twəːk/
- verb
- [no object] informal
- Definition: to dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance:
- Ex: just wait till they catch their daughters twerking to this song, twerk it girl, work it girl

- Origin: 1990s: probably an alteration of work

Yep, that's accurate. Now, we wait until they decide to add #ExpressYourself.
