‘Wiki’ : Now in Oxford Dictionary



The word ‘Wiki’ is now an official English Word . The word which was originally born in Pacific Island of Hawaii is finally going to be included in the Oxford English dictionary along with 287 others .

According to the chied editor of Oxford Dictionary

Words are included in the dictionary on the basis of the documentary evidence that we have collected about them. A while ago this evidence suggested that wiki was starting to make a name for itself

But ‘Wiki Wiki’ which means ‘quick’ in Hawaiian is going to have a diffrent meaning in the dictionary . It will be a type of Web page designed so that its contents can be edited by anyone who accesses it .
