"Selfie" originally emanated from Australia which has a somewhat quaint (for want of a better word!) habit of adding "ie"  to common words such as barbie (barbecue), Chrissie pressie (Christmas present), pollie (politician), tradie (tradesmen) etc etc.  When I first arrived here 40 years ago, it drove me crazy but after a time, I found myself shortening words too. It's slack of course but reflects the laid back lifestyle of Aussies - there you go, there's another one!
