THE editors of the Oxford English Dictionary have included a series of ill-advised words after speaking to cruel teenagers.
New additions to the OED include ‘madchunkle’ which researchers were told is ‘a slang term for attractive girl’ and ‘dunchy-wunchy’ which means ‘anything that is cool’.
Corduroy-clad dictionary compiler Roy Hobbs said: “I actually got bullied at school for being a physically fragile grammar and vocabulary obsessive.
“But nowadays dictionaries are cool and I’m constantly interviewing madchunkles about the latest dunchy-wunchy street parlance.
“At the rate I’m going to be up to my proutons in katingle.
“It’s well spankus.”
18-year-old street slang consultant Emma Bradford said: “I actually feel a bit bad about this, but it’s too late now.”
Roy Hobbs added: These hip new words will finally lay to rest the misconception that were a bunch of nerds who sit around all day making obscure jokes about Latinate suffixes.
“We only do that on Friday afternoons.”
