Merriam-Webster words of the year
The online Merriam-Webster has a list of words of the year. Guess what is the top 1? No, not "linguistics", but "blog". Many other in the top 10 list are politically related, but one is particularly curious: cicada. They are very common in Brasil in the Fall. Especially disgusting for some, especially because they "pee" on you when making that loud noise. I also heard that they are no peeing. It is another fluid that you can imagine by yourselves. Anyway, the list is based on the on-line lookups, I still cannot figure out why it had so many inquiries. Please, send suggestions in the comments section.
