If you’ve got a minute, head on over to Merriam-Webster to vote for the word of the year. Last year, it was truthiness. This year, they’re betting on pugnacious.
This year, visitors to Merriam-Webster OnLine may choose from a list culled from 2007’s most frequently look-up [sic] words on Merriam-Webster OnLine and and from Merriam-Webster’s Open Dictionary, Merriam-Webster said.
One candidate for the 2007 word of the year is “pugnacious,” which former President Gerald R. Ford used to describe Vice President Dick Cheney, Merriam-Webster said.
What’s that expression? Oh yeah: Vote early and vote often. If you’re in a sharing mood, feel free to report back on what you voted for and why.
