Words of the year/decade nominations are open
The American Dialect Society's annual vote, the longest-running vote of its kind in the world and the word-of-the-year event up to which all others lead, will be held in Baltimore on Friday, January 8, 2010. We're now accepting nominations from the entire English-speaking world for both word of the year 2009 and word of the decade for 2000-9. This is the society's 20th annual vote. It is an academic, non-commercial, whimsical event which in no way represents a bunch of pointy-headed intellectuals officially inducting words into the language but surely we can do better than "defriend," "admonish," and "distracted driving." Send nominations to woty@americandialect.org. More details.
