Word for Word #36 Word Watch
In this episode of our special "in-iso" season, we chat about new words on the team's radar. Our editors discuss the Karen phenomenon and Beyoncé, while Chief Editor Alison Moore explains dictionary headwords and how two words can win Word of the Year.
This is a COVID-19-free episode. If you are interested in new words arising from the pandemic, check out episode #35 A Pandemic of new words.
Join us as we explore our language: the ways we use it, the ways we abuse it, and the ways we ultimately change it.
