A New word gets admitted into the Oxford English Dictionary...

Re(1): 'Why are we Borking Harriet Miers', BoghieOnYourSix, Boghie


The Oxford English Dictionary has nominated the verb 'Borking' as a potential new English word in the 2006 edition of the dictionary. This was a close decision, but the fact that both major American political parties have now behaved in a way that defines the term 'to Bork' swayed the committee.

The committee would like to express appreciation to the blogs (another recent addition to the Oxford English Dictionary!!!) and Without their expressive dialog the term 'to Bork' would have remained unviable as an entry into the Oxford English Dictionary!

Thank You
