In this episode of Word for Word, we are joined by Tiger Webb from the ABC to chat about the inaugural Macquarie Dictionary Word of the Decade. Find out which words have had staying power and which have fallen out of use. 

Join us as we explore our language: the ways we use it, the ways we abuse it, and the ways we ultimately change it. 

You can also explore the 'additional links' below to discover what new words and definitions have been on our editor's minds in recent months.
