VOTING OPEN! WORD

OF THE YEAR 2020

What word best sums up 2020, and how you’re feeling heading into 2021? It’s Word of the Year time again here at Haggard Hawks, and as always we’re handing the voting over to you.

 

We’ve put five appropriately obscure words on the shortlist—aporia, casus omissus, eustress, respair and wheady-mile—and we’re asking you to pick the one you think best describes this tough old year the best. 

 

Head to our Word of the Year page for more info on the nominees, and to cast your vote!
