This is Laura Ellis bringing you the last SoA-related post of the year! Yesterday on State of Affairs we had one of our favorite annual shows: words of the year.  Our guest was Grant Barrett, word guru with the American Dialect Society.  Lots of folks called in to suggest words and phrases, so we thought we’d post some of the nominees.  While we don’t really pick a winner, it’s always fun and telling to hear what people come up with.

And the pianos students at the Youth Performing Arts School compiled this song, chock-full of words of the year. I’m hoping they’ll make this an annual tradition! Click here to listen!
