The 2015 Words of the Year are:

Three major publications released their annual words of the year last month. Merriam Webster’s. And Oxford Dictionaries. All use different methods to determine the word of the year, which is why each one decided on a different word.




Those are the three words picked by the three companies above. Yes, the emoji was one of them. And yes, “-ism” was another. I have no say in this conversation, but an emoji? Really? I won’t even say which company released it as their word of the year because I find the whole thing ridiculous.

And “-ism”. Welp.

At least identity is an actual word. So kudos to one of the three. Ugh.

What do you think of the three words of the year? I was expecting actual words, but I guess that was too much to ask.
