Instagrammar: Oxford crowns "selfie" word of the year

by Derek Spencer

Oxford Dictionaries has crowned "selfie" the word of the year for 2013, marking the third time since 2004 that the US and UK Word of the Year have been the same. For the full story, head to the Oxford Dictionaries blog:

Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year 2013: SELFIE

Whether you love or hate the word (not to mention the photograph genre), it's hard to deny selfie's ubiquity in the media this year. Passionate articles attacking the selfie have been written, as well as those in defense of the practice.

What do you think about selfie's coronation? Which words were snubbed? Let us know in the comments.
