I can’t believe it’s my third post about the word of the year 🙂 Incidentally, it’s Kate’s Crate’s second anniversary: I started this blog a few days before the New Year in 2017. It’s been really rewarding in many ways – but this post is not about blogging, it’s about what lexicographers have chosen as the most significant word for the whole world this year. So, without further ado:
Oxford: climate emergency
Merriam-Webster: they (the link is to the behind-the-scenes video explaining how they chose the word – so cool)
Collins: climate strike
P.P.S. What’s your word of the year? And what would you like your 2020 word to be?
