Words of the Year

by admin

In my opinion, 2016 has been the worst year for humanity in my lifetime and Words of the Year prove it.

Oxford Dictionaries’ Word of the Year is post-truth, an adjective defined as “denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.”

Dictionary.com’s Word of the Year aims to pick a word “that embodies a major theme resonating deeply in cultural consciousness.” This year’s selection was xenophobia, meaning fear or hatred of foreigners, people from different cultures or strangers.

Let’s hope next year’s will be more joyful.
