And the Children's Word of the Year goes to... Trump
The Oxford University Press has named "Trump" the Children's Word of the Year after sifting through 131,798 short stories written by kids and submitted to a BBC contest, NYT reports. The decision was made based on the 839% increase in the use of "Trump" and the context creativity.
This is the first time a proper noun has won either the children's word of the year or adult's word of the year.
Use examples: Snozzle Trump, Trumpelstilskin, Trumpido, Trumpwinningtastic. Hillary Clinton and Obama Llama also made appearances.
Runners up: Brexit, fake news, social media, vlog and super.
