It’s year-end wrap-up time. I love reading all kinds of lists that encompass the mood of the the past year, but my favorite has to be the words of 2019. Miriam Webster’s list is a mix of politics and culture.

  1. They
  2. Quid pro quo
  3. Crawdad
  4. Egregious
  5. Clemency
  6. The
  7. Snitty
  8. Tergiversation 
  9. Camp
  10. Exculpate

When looking back at my top posts of the year, I at least find two of these words. I think you know which two, although probably not in the context Miriam Webster was thinking.

To figure out what my words of 2019 were, I decided to create word cloud for each of my most read posts. All in all, not a bad list of words.
