The word of the year? You be the decider! | Oddly Enough | Reuters.com
NEW YORK (Reuters) – Will “landslide” win by a landslide? Will “sectarian,” “vendetta” or “decider” be named 2006’s word of the year?

Merriam-Webster Inc., publisher of a leading U.S. dictionary, is asking visitors to its Web site — http://www.merriam-webster.com/info/06words.htm — to pick the “one single word that sums up 2006.”

The voting began November 20 and concludes on December 4, Arthur Bicknell, a spokesman for the Springfield, Massachusetts-based company, said in a telephone interview.

“We’ve been getting literally thousands of submissions,” he said.

There is only one word that defines 2006: Truthiness

Please, vote for it. We have to be the Decider on this.
