What is the word or phrase which best characterizes the year 2011? What expression most reflects the ideas, events, and themes which have occupied the English-speaking world, especially North America?

Each year since 1990, the American Dialect Society has chosen a word of the year at its annual meeting. We'll do it again in January in Portland, Oregon, and we're asking for your word-of-the-year nominations.

Nominations can be sent by email to woty at americandialect.org, tweeted to the Twitter user name @americandialect or using the hashtag #woty11, or they can be posted on our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/americandialect .
