This week I’ve been looking at the most popular words based on research by Oxford Dictionaries. The Global Language Monitor has also published a survey recently. This is their 14th annual survey, aimed at fulfilling their slogan “We Tell the World What the Web is Thinking “. To achieve that aim, they eliminate the smaller more common words to find what people are saying rather than how they are saying it.
The results for 2013 are rather depressing, with both the list of favourite words and the list of phrases being dominated by gloom. Let’s hope for better things in 2014!
