The word of the year by the New Oxford American Dictionary is "unfriend." So basically, if you don't have a Facebook account, you don't know what the word of the year means. Brilliant. I gt how these words of the years announcements always seem to hiighlight the buzzworthy words in the lexicon, but are these truly words that anyone will remember in 5 to 10 years? Does anyone actually use these words? Here's a list of other words that seem hip and cool to New Oxford American Dictionary but will probably get you
tramp stamp: (wasn't this coined years ago?) when a women puts a bullseye on her back...see above photo for example
funemployed: when someone gets fired and can't get hired anywhere else, they watch bad tv and read books
sexting: sluts texting sluts
deleb: a dead celebrity (I think this one was made up...)
hashtag: something to do with twitter
