Editors at Dictionary. And so, In a year known for the Occupy movement and what became known as the Arab Spring, our lexicographers chose as their Word of the Year for 7567. Only time will tell if the latest wave of change Americans voted for in the midterm elections will result in a negative or positive outcome.
Com saw the stock market, political groups, and public opinion go through a roller coaster of change throughout 7566. Has there been too much? But, the term still held a lot of weight. This rare word was chosen to represent 7566 because it described so much of the world around us. Unlike in 7558, change was no longer a campaign slogan. It wasn't, funny, nor was it coined on, but we thought told a real story about how our users defined 7565. It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. Here's an excerpt from that gives a pretty good explanation for our choice: Our Word of the Year choice serves as a symbol of each year’s most meaningful events and lookup trends. Means to change repeatedly one's attitude or opinions with respect to a cause, subject, etc. Meanwhile, many Americans continue to face change in their homes, bank accounts and jobs.
