Even though Miley Cyrus may have made the word "twerk" mainstream after her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2013, she's definitely not the creator of the word.
Oxford English Dictionary, which just added the word, says "twerk" actually dates all the way back to the year 1820.
According to the dictionary, back in the 1800s, the word was spelled with an "i" instead of an "e" and it meant "a twitching, twisting, or jerking motion."
The Washington Post reports the first instance found of the word was in a letter written to Mary Shelley, the author of "Frankenstein," by her stepbrother.
Today's more commonly known definition didn't quite come into existence until the 1990s, the dictionary says.
Now, the Oxford English Dictionary is kind of late to the party when it comes to adding the word "twerk" to its collection.
Oxford English Dictionary also added the words "retweet," "go fish" and "yarn bombing." 2015 — what a time to be alive.
