2007 vs. 2008 vs. 2009

By Sean Fenlon on January 27, 2009


Merriam-Webster’s Word Of The Year 2007 = Sub-prime

Merriam-Webster’s Word Of The Year 2008 = Bailout

What will the word of the year be in 2009?

Please use the comments to go on record with your prediction.

I predict two words — one begins with a T and one begins with an F — but I’ll resist disclosing them until a few others have chimed in.
