The word "trump" -- and/or the name "Trump" -- was recently selected by the Oxford University Press as the Children's Word of the Year.
We're not making this up. Check out the article on the right (click the image to enlarge), and read the rest of the article HERE.
Of course, part of the reason for the win can be attributed to the fact that "trump" in British English means "fart" (that definition has only been recently added to the American lexicon for "Trump").
Another controversial Word of the Year (WotY) choice was when the Oxford University Press chose the "tears of joy" emoji as its WotY in 2015.
Of course that selection can be traced back to the invention of the emoji by Emmett Lee Dickinson (Emily Dickinson's third cousin, twice removed -- at her request). He first wrote about emojis in his now-classic poem "Emojis exist" (below on the left). Dickinson's poem inspired third cousin Emily to pen her peom "A word is dead" (below on the right).
