App is Chosen as Word of the Year


“App” chosen as word of the year by American Dialect Society:

“Short for ‘application,’ ‘app’ received 69 votes from the linguists in the society. Speaking to MSNBC, the Dialect Society’s executive secretary said ‘I think this past year there wasn’t anything clearly dominant. But there’s no question ‘app’ is a very powerful word.'”

Idiocracy is a 2006 American satirical comedy film about a society in which stupid people easily out-breed the intelligent, the result is a world that has degenerated into a barely functioning society]
