writing to know, knowing thru being, being for writing... this is me, writing about the one thing i know, which is myself... and even that is sometimes a mystery...

Word of the Year 2005 Contest!!!

hi, readership.

i am doing a project for my linguistics class, and i need to pick a word or phrase that best symbolizes the year in... well, words.

it can be something political or social or artistic or pop-cultural.

anything.

but there's so many out there, i can hardly fathom settling on just one.

that's where you come in:

i'm asking for ideas and/or suggestions, to be submitted with a brief explanation in the comments section.

i will pick one of the submissions. the winner gets a prize (i'm thinking a sweet mix tape... or a poem).

the american dialect society
did something similar last year. these were their results.

hopefully ours will be more interesting, right?

submit away!
~o.s.
