'Backronym' crowdfunds itself into Oxford English Dictionary


Re: Twerk

I think you have a very good point there, although you were only intending to joke.

Since I first read 'twerk' I have thought it must be based on nasty pimp-prostitute expressions in disco and rap, which take the double meaning on the dance floor.

It has to have been a contraction of 'to work your booty' originally.
