Can You Guess What Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Year is?

The day has arrived where the world gets a glimpse into what digital culture has made of our varying languages. According to Time, Merriam-Webster has released its Word of the Year for 2017: “No one word can ever encapsulate all the news, events, or stories of a given year,” says Merriam-Webster editor Peter Sokolowski.

People took to the Internet this year to look up the word (wait, people really don’t know what feminism is?) back in February when Kellyanne Conway, during remarks at the Conservative Political Action Conference, said “It’s difficult for me to call myself a feminist in the classic sense because it seems to be very anti-male, and it certainly is very pro-abortion.”
