“Subprime” is 2007 word of the year

I couldn’t make this up if I tried! The American Dialect Society has named “Subprime” as the 2007 Word of the Year, it also won the new category for real estate words. This new category reflects the nation’s recent obsession with the housing market and the deepening mortgage crisis. Runners up for the Word of the Year include, “green”, “surge”, “Facebook”, “Waterboarding”, and “Googleganger”.
