Have you ever organized a tweet-up or told someone to chillax? They are among the 2,000 newest words in the Oxford English Dictionary.

A tweet-up is a meeting arranged through Twitter.

Chillax is to chill and relax.

Don't forget the vuvuzela, the loud South African horn blown by soccer fans during the World Cup.

And cheeseball, someone or something that lacks taste, style or originality.
