'Toxic' Is Oxford English Dictionary's Word Of 2018

 

Oxford English Dictionary according to Bustle, just announced that the word of 2018 is TOXIC! If you been paying attention to what has been going on in the world and this country, this makes so much sense! 

 "Per the dictionary’s main website, the adjective toxic was first coined in English in the mid-seventeenth century from the medieval Latin term, toxicus, and it means “poisoned” or “imbued with poison,” according to Oxford"

So what is this based on? The number of look ups of the word! 

"According to NPR, Oxford Dictionaries found a “45 percent increase in look-ups of toxic,” in 2018. The word spanned so many searches that “the sheer scope of its application, as found by our research, made toxic the stand-out choice for the Word of the Year title,” said Oxford."

Even before knowing that, it just made sense!
