‘Gangnam Style’ is word of the year



After becoming a hit on Youtube and crowned as the most-watched video ever on Youtube, Korean Singer Psy’s pop sensation “Gangnam Style” is now a word of the year on a renowned British dictionary along with “mummy porn” , “fiscal cliff” and “Romneyshambles”.

Each word was submitted by the public to the on-line dictionary at www.collinsdictionary.com/submission.

“We are astounded by how quickly new trends form. Choosing one word for 2012 didn’t match the pace of change,” Ian Brookes, consulting editor at Collins, said.
