Here is the most used word in the world

Share

It is well known that the word 'internet', 'okay', or even 'coca-cola' are part of the list of the most used words in the world. But 2020 seems to have overturned this report.
The well-known dictionary "Collins" has identified as the most used word of the year "lockdown".

Collins stressed that the word "defining strict restrictions on travel, social interaction and access to public spaces" was chosen because it was "a unifying word for billions of people around the world."

Six of the 10 words selected related to the pandemic, including "coronavirus", "self-isolation" and "social distancing".

Other shortlisted words are TikTok, the word "BLM", the acronym for "Black Lives Matter", which Collins defines as "a campaign against violence and racial oppression."
