Word of the year

What do you think the word of 2007 was? My vote is "carbon footprint."

That's a good one! I wish the word had been 'retirement'!

I still agree with you that 'carbon footprint' was the Word, but suspect that 'tipping point' will soon follow . . .

I suspect this is like Time's person of the year, but with a word? I would be remiss then, if I didn't point out that "carbon footprint" is two words, and thus immediately disqualified. Ugh, trying to show sarcasm online can be hard. Anyway, I'd have to disagree with you and go with "Troop Surge" if we are talking only American's, or "Middle East Conflict" if we are including the whole world. Perhaps it has to do with where I work and who I associate with, but conflict in the Middle East still dominated just about everything. Also, I'll give "sub-prime mortgage" a nod as honorable mention.

Yeah, I guess it is two words. I'm sticking with it though.

My local newspaper just did an article on what they thought was the word of the year, and they suggested "subprime" along with "green." "Troop surge" is good, too.
