English Word of the Year Announced!

WORD OF THE YEAR JUST ANNOUNCED …

And it’s the “Face With Tears of Joy” emoji – named by Oxford Dictionaries as the word of the year because it best reflects the “ethos, mood, and preoccupations of 2015.”

It beat out competition like lumbersexual, on fleek, and the pronoun “they.” Don’t you love the evolving English language?!

The Face With Tears of Joy was the most used emoji in the world this year, accounting for 17% of emoji use in the U.S. and 20% in the UK. Move over plain old smiley face — there’s a new emoji in town ;-)!
