2013 Word of the Year: What Is It?

by at . Comments

Sorry, Miley Cyrus. You tried your hardest.

But the Oxford Dictionary has awarded the Word of the Year for 2013 not to "Twerk" (which finished second), but to "Selfie," the short-hand for "self-portrait" that truly took off in the past 12 months.

Oxford says this term was introduced in 2002 and is now officially an English language word, one we honor below via a montage of celebrity selfies... starting with Kim Kardashian in a bathing suit!
