      Several new words are being added to the Oxford English Dictionary, but many of them have been used for a while. 

      Many of the words are abbreviations of slang words, such as totes, obvs and whatevs – which are short for totally, obviously and whatever.

      Other words being added to the dictionary include “po-po” – which is slang for police and “onsie,” a piece of infant’s clothing.
