Word Of The Year

Okay, The Oxford English Dictionary has officially selected its ‘Word of the Year’ for 2015 & guess what? It’s not even a word. It is the emoji symbol described as “The face with tears of joy.” There is just one problem. I don’t know how I’m going to play that in Scrabble.

A few other words that made the OED’s shortlist this year were: Ad Blocker, Dark Web, On fleek & Lumbersexual.

Additionally, The Collins Dictionary has declared their ‘Word of the Year’ to be Binge-watch. Thank you, Netflix. Also, Dictionary.com has named Identity as their ‘Word of the Year’.

My ‘Word of the Year’ would be: Snafu as well as the words: Ubiquitious, Guffaw & Self-Preservation being amongst the top five.

So, what would your ‘Word of the Year’ be? Send me tweet @Abigailb18 using the hashtag #WordoftheYear. I’d love to see your selections!
