You have until Friday, December 7, 2007, to vote for Merriam-Webster dictionaries’ Word of the Year.
The winner in 2006 was truthiness, as popularized by Stephen Colbert on The Colbert Report TV show.
- vanity sizing
- w00t [woot with zeros]
Merriam-Webster also now offers a free online Visual Dictionary.
In other Word of the Year news, the New Oxford American Dictionary has chosen locavore, a person who advocates “using locally grown ingredients” for meals (runners-up).
