Merriam-Webster's Word of the Year

Wednesday, December 03, 2008

merriam-webster says the word of the year, meaning the word with the highest intensity of lookups in their online version in 2008 is:

bailout
which is probably not shocking. i like the whole top ten list; it's like the abbreviated john mccain story.
bailout
vet
socialism
maverick
bipartisan
trepidation
precipice
rogue
misogyny
turmoil
[via websters, slog]
