(EN) – Duckface to Smize: A small glossary of selfie terminology | Rachel Lopez


Do you know how to squinch, and have you ever taken a shelfie?

Don’t blame America for everything. The term ‘selfie’ comes from Down Under, where adding -ie to a short-form is common: barbie for barbecue, Aussie for Australian. The word has been in use since the 2000s and became Oxford Dictionary’s Word of the Year in 2013. It’s also spawned its own lexicon.
