‘Twerk’ Sashays Into Oxford’s Online Dictionary

NPR- August 28, 2013

“Twerk” is one of several dozen words or phrases that Oxford Dictionaries Online has added to it website. Oxford’s definition for the verb: “Dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance.” The origin? “Probably an alteration of WORK.”

After careful review of “Twerking” I’m finding,
Similitude to “bumping and grinding.”
