Word of the Year

The Word of the Year results from Webster’s New World’s language monitoring program, which documents emerging English as it appears in the press, TV, radio, and Internet. Every month, more than 2,000 new words, meanings, pronunciations, and spellings are identified. At the end of the year, the editors at Webster’s New World review the collected research and create a short list of words that have yet to appear in the dictionary but hold intrinsic linguistics qualities that merit consideration for entry into the Webster’s New World lexicon.
