I do an annual “Word of the Year” feature, sharing the choices from various organizations around the world.
Only a few have been chosen so far, but the pace will pick up over the next few weeks and I’ll be adding links to this post.
You can see all my vocabulary-related “Best” lists, including previous editions of “Words Of The Year,” here.
I’m adding this post to All My 2019 “Best” Lists In One Place!
Here is what I have so far:
Oxford Names ‘Climate Emergency’ Its 2019 Word of the Year is from The NY Times.
‘Climate strike’ named 2019 word of the year by Collins Dictionary is from The Guardian.
“Climate strike” named word of the year by Collins Dictionary is from CBS News.
The past, present, and future of the singular “they” is from Vox.
The Word Of The Year Is ‘They’ is from NPR.
Two leading dictionary companies have unveiled their annual selections. @MerriamWebster has chosen “they” as its word of the year, while @OED has selected “climate emergency.” Students: What one word or phrase best represents 2019? Why?https://t.co/MHSHpXCkyn
