It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy, funny, nor was it coined on Twitter, but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined 2010. The national debate can arguably be summarized by the question: In the past two years, has there been enough change? Meanwhile, many Americans continue to face change in their homes, bank accounts and jobs. Only time will tell if the latest wave of change Americans voted for in the midterm elections will result in a negative or positive outcome. Tergiversate This rare word was chosen to represent 2011 because it described so much of the world around us.
Tergiversate means “to change repeatedly one’s attitude or opinions with respect to a cause, subject, etc. Bluster In a year known for the Occupy movement and what became known as the Arab Spring, our lexicographers chose bluster as their Word of the Year for 2012. 2012 saw the most expensive political campaigns and some of the most extreme weather events in human history, from floods in Australia to cyclones in China to Hurricane Sandy and many others. Privacy We got serious in 2013. Privacy was on everyone’s mind that year, from Edward Snowden’s reveal of Project PRISM to the arrival of Google Glass.
Exposure Spoiler alert: Things don’t get less serious in 2014. Our Word of the Year was exposure, which highlighted the year’s Ebola virus outbreak, shocking acts of violence both abroad and in the US, and widespread theft of personal information. From the pervading sense of vulnerability surrounding Ebola to the visibility into acts of crime or misconduct that ignited critical conversations about race, gender, and violence, various senses of exposure were out in the open this year. Identity Fluidity of identity was a huge theme in 2015. Language around gender and sexual identity broadened, becoming more inclusive with additions to the dictionary like gender-fluid as well as the gender-neutral prefix Mx.
Xenophobia In 2016, we selected xenophobia as our Word of the Year. Fear of the “other” was a huge theme in 2016, from Brexit to President Donald Trump’s campaign rhetoric. Despite being chosen as the 2016 Word of the Year, xenophobia is not to be celebrated. Rather it’s a word to reflect upon deeply in light of the events of the recent past. Complicit The word complicit sprung up in conversations in 2017 about those who spoke out against powerful figures and institutions and about those who stayed silent. It was a year of real awakening to complicity in various sectors of society, from politics to pop culture.
Our choice for Word of the Year is as much about what is visible as it is about what is not. It’s a word that reminds us that even inaction is a type of action. The silent acceptance of wrongdoing is how we’ve gotten to this point. We must not let this continue to be the norm. If we do, then we are all complicit. Ready For Some Regional Rap Slang?

The Role of Cattle Slurry in the BTB Story. This is a long document, 48 pages, but an interesting read. To consider, through a comprehensive literature review, the role of slurry in spreading bovine TB and whether slurry from infected animals should be treated or disinfected prior to spreading. There are several ways in which cattle can become infected with M. Routes of infection in cattle include the respiratory and alimentary routes, with the respiratory route considered to be predominant. The route of infection, infective dose and host susceptibility will determine whether infection occurs, with respiratory transmission requiring a much lower infective dose than oral transmission. In field cases of bovine TB and experimental models, lesion distribution and pathology show predominant involvement of the upper and lower respiratory tract and associated lymph nodes, which is supportive of infection via the respiratory route.
Indirect transmission via the respiratory route could potentially happen through the aerosol spreading of infective material including via the air-borne spreading of contaminated slurry. Droplets of contaminated water, eructation while ruminating, infected pastures or inhalation of contaminated dust particles could also be an alternative way of aerogenous infection. TB from badgers to cattle and from wild deer to cattle. We have concentrated on potential risks posed by cattle slurry and have not discussed directly or in any detail the risks posed by badger excretions on farm or on pasture.
Improperly managed manures could constitute a potential infection risk for livestock particularly if pathogenic organisms, such as Salmonella, Clostridia, E. Mycobacteria, are present in animal excretions. Solid manure is not considered to present a risk in terms of infection if it has been well composted, especially since it is less likely to generate aerosols during application to land. Slurry does not undergo composting during storage.
As a result, slurry is extremely unlikely to reach high temperatures during storage and consequently pathogenic bacteria are more likely to survive for longer periods in stored slurry. The risk of infection associated with spreading of cattle slurry is likely to be much greater than spreading manure. Spreading slurry can generate aerosols that potentially carry bacteria for considerable distances. Respiratory transmission to neighbouring farms via slurry aerosols, whilst probably unlikely, cannot currently be excluded. Studies indicate that inadequate storage of slurry is associated with an increased risk of TB transmission.
