There are several “words of the year” lists that come out annually. The might be useful for advanced English Language Learners, but I think they can be more effectively used in Theory of Knowledge classes (plus, they’re fun to read for English teachers 🙂 ).
Here are my choices for The Best “Words Of The Year” Features For 2010:
The Wall Street Journal has an interactive on The Words of the Year.
Wikipedia has an excellent section on Words of The Year.
The Top Political Buzzwords of 2010 comes from The Nation.
The year in language:The best and worst of 2010 comes from The Boston Globe
Additional suggestions are welcome.
