Say Whaaat…? Emoji Wins Oxford Dictionaries’ Word of the Year 2015

If you haven’t heard, Oxford Dictionaries recently released their “Word of the Year 2015” and drum roll please….it’s an emoji!! No, not the word emoji (that was added to Oxford Dictionaries in 2013) – I’m talking about the “face with tears of joy” emoji you use when a friend texts you a video of cats being scared by cucumbers. I think it’s an interesting direction for a dictionary to go, but how does one look up an image in a dictionary? I wonder if one day we will have the Oxford Emojis Dictionaries for when emojis start to replace most of our communications. Just kidding! (Kind of.)
