For the first time ever, the 'Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year' is not a word... but an emoji! How weird is that?? And the award goes for one particular emoji: the 'Face with Tears of Joy'! As you can see, it's very happy for this:
The Oxford Dictionaries' blog says that this emoji was chosen as "the 'word' that best reflected the ethos, mood, and preoccupations of 2015" (more info here)
I feel that the Oxford Dictionaries guys are being kind of sarcastic here. Looking around us, I can't see many reasons to laugh so hard lately... But it seems this is one of the most used emoji globally in 2015
I don't know whether this is good or bad, ridiculous or brilliant... Anyway, let's smile about it :)
Which emoji do you use most?
What would be your '2015 Word of the Year'?
