Masshole is a real word - fo'shizzle - after additions to Oxford dictionary


Masshole is now a real word.

So is fo'shizzle. Both are part of long lists of new additions to the Oxford Dictionary according to Time.com

The definitions:

Masshole (n., 1989): term of contempt for a native or inhabitant of the state of Massachusetts.

Fo’ shizzle (phr., 2001): in the language of rap and hip-hop this means “for sure.” Shizzle, as a euphemism for s**t, dates back to the ’90s. One can also be “the shizzle,” which is the best or most popular thing.

The Oxford Dictionary makes quarterly updates to its contents by tracing the earliest use and all possible definitions to a new word or phrase.
