Merriam-Webster Announces the 2007 Word of the Year

The votes are in based on a combined list of twenty of the most frequently looked-up words and most popular submissions on Merriam-Webster OnLine.

I must confess I never heard of the winner.

(interjection) expressing joy (it could be after a triumph, or for no reason at all); similar in use to the word "yay"."

The list contain words that are old and well know(conundrum), old and obscure (sardoodledum), and newish (blamestorm). Have some fun and try to work them into your conversations. I think the Circulation Librarian has used Pecksniffian several times already.
