OED on Blog

In their current newsletter the North American Editorial Unit (NAEU) of the Oxford English Dictionary considers adding the term ‘blog’:

The NAEU is also working closely with the new words group in Oxford, carefully reviewing the high-profile new words that are so often of American origin, and drafting new entries for words that have come to our attention. Some of the words we have drafted in recent months include tipping point, gentleman’s C, weaponize, collateral damage, blog, skeevy, and perp walk.
