If you haven't seen enough of Miley Cyrus twerking at Sunday's MTV VMAs, be forewarned -- you might be seeing her picture next to the word "twerk" in a dictionary one day.
Quartz reports that Oxford Dictionaries Online is including "twerk" in its latest update of phrases that have recently come into general use. ("Twerk" won't go in the Oxford University Press' venerable Oxford English Dictionary just yet, Quartz reports, but it's only a matter of time, right?)
The ODO defines "twerk" as a verb meaning to "dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance," which pretty much nails Cyrus' performance at the VMAs.
However you define it, there's no denying that Cyrus has been pushing the dance into the public's consciousness since March, when a video of her twerking in a unicorn costume went viral.
Of course, she wasn't the first person to twerk. Headline News has a brief history of the dance.
