We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us what word they think should be crowned 2016's Word of the Year. Here are some of the top contenders:
"As a Brit, this year’s word for me would be Brexit. It didn’t even exist at the start of the year, and now look! Sad, sorry state of affairs." —knebworthkate
"'Historical,' because it was a really historical year." —M.J. Cormier, Facebook
"I think 'bigly.' Because Trump made it famous. And he won bigly. People made fun of him everywhere. But he showed us. Bigly." —Emma Walters, Facebook
—Liz Restivo, Facebook
“'Fairly self-explanatory given the circumstances." —wonderfullyblue
"...cause the year was full of 'em." —nku
