Default Words of 2020

Was joking with my wife last night about what the familiar "review of the year" TV shows might be like this year "January, February... oh look at what we thought was significant, how cute!!"

Then we discussed what words we would not have recognised back in January or February, and there are plenty to choose from. What's your choice for the Word(s) of the Year 2020?


Starter for 10... "social distance"

That's interesting, but I'm from the engineering industry and PPE has been an everyday term my whole career.

There's plenty to choose from out there FL, so I'm afraid I'm not letting PPE in. Try again!

I think the phrase “ you’re on mute” is the most commonly uttered in my experience

"China virus". Inaccurate and pejorative, but far too common in American political discourse this year.
