Merriam-Webster just came out with their Word of the Year. As usual, the choice is determine by what people actually look up.
I’ll be coming out with my list at the end of the month. Like last year, I’ll do a word for every month. I have a candidate for each month, except December—which I’ll pick over the next couple of weeks—and I’ll finalize the list at month’s end.
Even though I have candidates, suggestions are still welcome.
