That's right. The Merriam-Webster Word of the Year isn't even entirely composed of letters. See, I always thoughts words had to be composed of letters. How modern of me in this postmodern world!
I especially enjoyed the definition, since I've seen the word before, but didn't know its proper usage, since I'm not an adolescent gamer.
w00t (interjection)Now that it's in the dictionary, everyone will be using it. Can't you see an excited home decorator saying "w00t! Check out the deal I got on wholesale flowers!" or a businessman exclaiming "The budget numbers are finally in! w00t!" Maybe this already happens, and I'm living under a rock.
expressing joy (it could be after a triumph, or for no reason at all); similar in use to the word "yay"
w00t! I won the contest!
The runner-up for word of the year? Another adolescent pursuit. "facebook" Not the proper noun for the brand-name site, but as a verb:
(verb) : to look up someone's profile on the popular Internet social network Facebook.
I facebooked Sarah the other day and posted a comment on her wall, but she has yet to reply to my comment.
