Merriam-Webster Word of the Year

Every year Merriam-Webster takes nominations for word of the year. They compile a list of the top ten from these submissions. This year the number one word is truthiness. It is an interesting new word recently coined to refer to "truth that comes from the gut, not books", or "the quality of preferring concepts or facts one wishes to be true, rather than concepts or facts known to be true". For a full list of the top 10 words for 2006 and past years, go to Merriam-Webster online:
