Since 1990, the AMERICAN DIALECT SOCIETY has selected words of the year to
highlight language change, to bring a few aspects of the study of
linguistics to the public’s attention, and to have a little bit of fun. The
lighthearted vote is held each year the time of the society’s annual

This year, we're trying to gather a little more information about
nominations by using this nominating form:


Good nominations:

   - Don't have to be brand-new
   - Should show a rise in popularity in 2018
   - Can be a multiword phrase or compound
   - Are not peeves and complaints
   - Are not little-used thematic words

The final vote will be held in New York City in January.

Best wishes,
