Best of 2007: Words

I love this word that has the honor of being Merriam-Webster’s word of the year: W00t! It is fun to type and not easy to say (at least, not for me). And of course, we love it when woot.com has its woot off.

Oxford’s choice doesn’t have fun interjected. Its word of the year is locavore. Oxford also lists runners-up.

Webster’s New World new word of 2007 is grass station.

Dictionary.com selects a word of the month, you can see all 12 words of the month for 2007.

On the other end, Lake Superior State University identifies its banished words of 2007. One of those being combined celebrity couple names like TomKat and Brangelina. The Office Best of 2007: Words‘s Michael Scott, in his unwanted toast at his employee’s wedding, announced if you combine their names, they’d be Phlob (Phyllis and Bob Vance).
