Just yesterday The Oxford English Dictionary added  another internet slang  to the   dictionary.

new_dictionary-TECHCRIBNG

Some of these “new words” can only be used within the context of or only on the Internet, while other existing words are now getting a new identity that carry alternate meanings, and hence, uses. The rising use of acronyms and abbreviations have also changed the way we use English.

Today, we are going to look at 25 of these new slang that are added to the dictionary from 2006 till date.

al desko (adjective) : One definition centers on workers who toil at their desks, and grab a bite while others go out to lunch or eating at the desk.

25 Dictionary Words That Originated From The Internet

origin : It’s sort of an ironic play on the phrase to eat ‘al fresco,’ for eating outdoors.

4. Derp (2013)

derp: (exclamation) according to oxford dictionary used as a substitute for speech regarded as meaningless or stupid, or to comment on a foolish or stupid action. for example : Not much point boycotting the company anymore if the reason for boycotting has gone away…derp.

25 Dictionary Words That Originated From The Internet

Origins: The word “derp” was first uttered by South Park co-creator, Matt Stone who starred as himself in the comedy film, BASEketball in 1998. The South Park episode “The Succubus” also featured a character, Mr. Derp who goes around shouting “Derp!” every time he makes a fool of himself.

Nowadays , Derp is often used as placeholder for a character or an act (derping) that is not crucial to the story-telling, primarily in rage comics. Derp has plenty of facial expressions to depict the state of emotion the character has. Derp has a female counterpart named Derpina.

5. Unlike (2013)

unlike: (verb) according to oxford dictionary withdraw one”s liking or approval of (a web page or posting on a social media website that one has previously liked)
this is commonly used by everybody . for example : he sounded irritable, which was unlike him

unlike-techcribng
Origins: The “like” button in Facebook has created a new meaning to the already existing word “unlike”. The button is already available on other social networking sites, Internet forums and websites, even before Facebook incorporated it, but there”s no doubt that Facebook was the one that promoted the feature to the world – so much so that most people who use the Internet now know what it means to “unlike” something which they had “like”d before.

6. Srsly (2013)

srsly: (adverb) short for seriously
example: as submodifier: it is a srsly cool bike

Origins: Due to the 160-char limitation imposed on text messages, and the 140-char limit imposed on microblogging sites, “seriously” had its vowels removed, giving us “srsly”. Today, despite the removal of such limitations with instant messaging services like WhatsApp and WeChat, the word still stuck because there were fewer letters to type out. Fun fact: it existed in the late 18th century in some manual on shorthand writing!

7. Tweet (2013)

Tweet: (noun) a posting or an update made on a popular social media website Twitter .

Origins: The Oxford English Dictionary officially included the “tweet” in June, bypassing their requirement for new words (and meanings) to be in use for a minimum of 10 years before they can even enter the dictionary. Still, the incredible fifty-fold jump of the usage of the word “tweet” from 2006 to 2012 seems to justify breaking that rule, no?

8. TL;DR (2013)

tl;dr: (acronym) short for “Too long; Didn’t read”

Origins: As with all things on the Internet, it is a sin to ramble on and on and on as the attention span of its users are fleeting at best. “tl; dr” is commonly used in online discussion forums to indicate that the post is just too wordy. True to its word, or letters, the phrase “too long; didn’t read” itself is shortened to a mere four letters.

9. FOMO (2013)

FOMO: (noun) anxiety that an exciting or interesting event may currently be happening elsewhere, often aroused by posts seen on a social media website

Origins: Nobody seems to know who first mouthed this acronym, but there’s no denying that the fear of missing out has been around even before online social networking was here – we simply called it “keeping up with the Joneses”.

10. GIF (2012)

GIF: (verb) a lossless format for image files that supports both animated and static images

Origins: Word of the year for 2012, GIF, which stands for Graphics Interchange Format, showcases animated images that go round in loops. GIF was created by Steve Wilhite at CompuServe in 1987 but it was only recently, and after years of debate, that the creator confirmed the pronunciation as “jif”.

11. Photobomb (2012)

photobomb: (verb) spoil a photograph of (a person or thing) by unexpectedly appearing in the camera’s field of view as the picture is taken, typically as a prank or practical joke (Source)

13. Inbox (2012)

inbox: (verb) send a private message or an email to (someone, typically another member of a social networking website or Internet message board)(Source)

Origins: If you think that inbox existed back when emails were ganing popularity, you would be half right. Back then, however, it was more of a noun than a verb. As of 2012 though, the word can also be referred to as a verb as well. “Inbox me” is essentially a “send me a private message” request, althougth we now have an even shorter version for that: PM.

14. Sext (2011)

sext: (verb) send (someone) sexually explicit photographs or messages via mobile phone (Source)

Origins: A combination of the word “sex” and “texting”, the idea of sending lewd messages or photos via mobile phones took flight when MMS overtook SMS as the way to communicate through mobile.

15. Twerk (2013)

twerk: according to oxford dictonary , dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance. for example : just wait till they catch their daughters twerking to this song

16. LOL (2011)

LOL: according to oxford dictionary laughing out loud; laugh out loud (used chiefly in electronic communication to draw attention to a joke or amusing statement, or to express amusement) (abbreviation). it also mean lot of love.

17. Noob (2009)

noob: (noun) a person who is inexperienced in a particular sphere or activity, especially computing or the use of the Internet (Source)

18. Hashtag (2009)

hashtag: (noun)according to oxford dictionary a word or phrase preceded by a hash sign (#), used on social media sites such as Twitter , facebook and instagram to identify messages on a specific topic

19. Unfriend (2009)

unfriend: (verb) remove (someone) from a list of friends or contacts on a social networking website (Source)

Origins: Like the word “unlike”, “unfriend” is the opposite of “friend”-ing someone, where you’d add someone to your list of contacts or social network friends. Unlike the word “unlike” however, “unfriend” was crowned word of the year back in 2009, the year Facebook was expanding exponentially.

20. Troll (2006)

In many ways, this is similar to how some people online provoke or aggravate others via offensive or irrelevant postings, in an attempt to evoke an emotional response. Ever since, the word “troll” is used to describe the act of trying to wreak havoc in online discussions.

21. Phablet (2013)

How Rwanda is spurring a generation of women in technology

Segun Balogun

Published

on

Rwanda is renowned as a pioneer for gender equality,In 2020, it was the only African country ranked in the top 10 of the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report.

It ranked in the top four in the Report’s political empowerment category, in recognition of the high proportion of Rwandese women lawmakers and ministers.

The country, therefore, seemed a natural fit for a 2018 pilot program of the African Development Bank’s Coding for Employment initiative, with Nigeria, Kenya, Côte d’Ivoire, and Senegal.

The Coding for Employment flagship program is establishing 130 ICT centers for excellence in Africa, training 234,000 youths for employability and entrepreneurship to create over 9 million jobs.

Hendrina C. Doroba, Manager in the Education, Human Capital and Employment Division at the Bank, explains how Rwanda is empowering women in technology.

How has the government of Rwanda enabled women to pursue careers in technology, and STEM in general?

The government of Rwanda has been a foremost champion of women in ICT and in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (also known as STEM), by driving initiatives like the establishment of the Carnegie Mellon University-Africa campus, for which the Bank provided funding. Students from 17 different countries pursue highly specialized ICT skills at the Africa campus.

The country also hosts the African Institute of Mathematics (AIMS) which is now recruiting balanced cohorts of women and men. Lastly, the Bank-funded University of Rwanda College of Science and Technology has for many years produced women leaders in the ICT sector in Rwanda and globally.

Rwanda’s government also supports initiatives such as the Miss Geek Rwanda competition, an initiative of Girls in ICT Rwanda, which aims to encourage school-age girls, even those in remote areas, to develop innovative tech or business ideas and to generally immerse themselves in ICT. The Miss Geek initiative has now been rolled out in other countries in the region.

What role has the Bank played in supporting Rwanda’s digital strategy, especially in relation to women?

The strategy of the Bank’s Coding for Employment center of excellence in Rwanda has been to join forces with the Rwanda Coding Academy through a grant agreement to support the school’s activities, like ICT equipment, teacher training and career orientation. The Rwanda Coding Academy started in January 2019 and has so far enrolled one cohort, which is now going into their second year.

Besides the Rwanda Coding Academy, the Bank’s Coding for Employment program held a two-day masterclass for girls and young women entrepreneurs at the 2018 Youth Conneckt summit, where over 200 beneficiaries were trained in using digital tools to amplify their businesses. The session was attended by women entrepreneurs as well as students from girl schools in Kigali, including those from White Dove School, which is an all-girl school fully dedicated to training in ICT. The masterclass culminated into a pitching exercises from various groups who presented their ideas to a panel of judges.

What lessons can other African countries learn from Rwanda’s approach to the 4IR, in particular the role of women?

The government of Rwanda has been a trailblazer in using innovation to improve public services across the country using the e-governance platform Irembo, to bring government services closer to citizens. In addition, the government is driving national digital skilling campaigns by championing digital ambassador programs and platforms such as Smart Africa, which has organized the annual Transform Africa summit since 2013.

Still, gender equality remains a concern, and gender gaps are evident even in schools. Rwanda’s ambitions extend to piloting the Kigali Innovation City, also Bank-funded, to serve as the country’s knowledge and innovation hub by attracting new businesses and incubating ideas. At the same time, the country has created a business environment which is pro-entrepreneurship and welcomes global inventors to test their ideas and concepts. Zipline, a company which uses drones to deliver medical supplies in remote areas, is one example.

Lastly, Rwanda promotes women leaders in the ICT and innovation sector. The country’s Minister of ICT and Innovation is a woman, as is the CEO of the Irembo platform. Appointments such as these are helping to dispel the myth that women are not as capable as men in ICT.
