 Group Sex Slang Makes Its Way Into Macquarie Dictionary
Bunning, the slang word for group sex, will remain known forever, as it has been added to the latest edition of the Macquarie Dictionary.

The term was made infamous by Matthew Johns and the Cronulla Sharks.

Publisher Sue Butler said the contribution from the rugby league sex scandal, which took place in a Christchurch hotel in 2002 but only emerged publicly earlier this year, will join 1000 other new words in a November edition.

"The dictionary has become a record of language and words in common use," The Daily Telegraph quoted Butler, as saying.

Linguistics expert Dr Marie-Therese Jensen said common words such as "bunning" should be in the dictionary.

"If the word is in use, then whether it's offensive or derogatory or positive, it should be in the dictionary," Jensen said.

"It is about recognising words that are used sufficiently often," she added.

Other words to make the cut include "tweeting," the act of sharing thoughts and comments with a group of friends over the Net.
