The Royal Spanish Academy has included the words “tuit” and “tweet” in the next print edition of their dictionary. The addition greatly reflect the changes in the society’s vocabulary in recent years.
Through their Twitter account, the academy announced the list of some of the changes made to the publication. Since 2001, the publication has been amended five times.
It seems that technology related jargons such as blogger, chat, SMS, and USB tablet, have finally been accepted into the dictionary and will be included in the upcoming print issue that is scheduled to go on sale in 2014.
Among other interesting additions by the Royal Academy is the meaning of marriage. In the upcoming issue, marriage is defined as: “Under certain laws, union of two persons of the same sex, concluded by certain rites or legal formalities to establish and maintain a community life and interests. ”
Also included are the words Euroscepticism, housing, euscaldún or euskaldón, squat, geek, ugetista, teleworker or Scientology, and many more.
