Spillcam 2010 Word of the Year

2010 Word of the Year

You know the end of the year is nigh when words of the year are announced. It seems like just about every dictionary has one, but today the Global Language Monitor, an organization that tracks trends in languages, named "spillcam" — the camera that turned into a live feed of the Gulf oil spill — the 2010 Word of the Year.

Nominees (all are in the word bubble above) range from Jersey Shore-inspired "guido" and "guidette" to Sarah Palin-coined "refudiate," but I suspect you have opinions on what word defines 2010. Submit below, and later we'll vote!
