As regular readers know, I do an annual “The Best…” list on the “words of the year” that various organizations name. They usually don’t start making the announcements until the last few months of the year, but one group has already announced their words for 2015.
So, I figured I’d get a head start on the list, post it now, and add links as new announcements are made.
Here’s the first announcement:
Hashtag is ‘children’s word of year’ is from The BBC.
‘Binge-Watch’ Heads Collins Dictionary’s Words of the Year List is from NBC News.
Oxford’s 2015 Word of the Year Is This Emoji is from TIME
Merriam-Webster announces its word of the year is from CBS News.
— The New York Times (@nytimes) December 21, 2015
‘Manspreading,’ ‘Vape’ and ‘So’: Hated Words for 2016 is from The New York Times.
10 words that explain 2015 is from Vox.
Sorry, grammar nerds. The singular ‘they’ has been declared Word of the Year. is from The Washington Post.
And here are links to my previous annual lists:
