Words of the Year - 2014

Postby Slava » Wed Nov 19, 2014 8:22 pm

The Oxford Dictionaries Online has announced their word of the year, one I personally do not like but can easily understand the choice: Vape.

Perhaps best left for vapid people to use.

This one is from dictionary.com, with an explanation as to the whys and whatnot: exposure.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.

The vape link is dead, so don't bother trying.

Unsurprisingly, the word of the year from dictionary.com for 2020 is...

drum roll...

Pandemic.

It wouldn't have been too surprising if exposure had been the word again.
