Collins Dictionary is the first to make a “Word of the Year” pick for 2020

Collins Dictionary is the first to make a “Word of the Year” pick for 2020, and they chose . . . "lockdown." 

They say the use of the word “lockdown” across websites, books, and news is up 6,000% from last year.

Some of their runners-up for Word of the Year are:

  • BLM
  • coronavirus
  • furlough
  • self-isolate
  • social distancing
