Collins Dictionary named their 'word of the year'


Collins Dictionary announced its word of the year - "lockdown". It was chosen because it's been a "unifying experience for billions of people across the world." 

Lockdown (noun): the imposition of stringent restrictions on travel, social interaction, and access to public spaces.

It was used over a quarter of a million times this year, VS in 2019 when it was used only 4, 000 times (in text). 

Other popular words that made the cut were Coronavirus, key worker, self-isolate, social distancing and Tik Toker.
