Susan Butler writes piece for The Drum about the Macquarie Word of the Year
What will be the word of the year? Even in such a short time, we can find patterns in the words we call on to describe, portray and reflect the world we inhabit today, writes Susan Butler.
In February the Macquarie Dictionary will announce the word that it considers to be the most significant in the annual upload to the dictionary online. This has been a dictionary ritual since 2006 and, as it progresses, will give us an opportunity to look back on the words that mattered to us over the decades and get the feel of each particular year. It is the dictionary version of a family photo album.
