American publishing company Merriam-Webster announced recently that “surreal” is its top Word of the Year for 2016. The word ‘surreal’ means ‘marked by the intense irrational reality of a dream’. The year was marked by Donald Trump’s upset win in the US presidential election and demonetization in India. These events have amazed people so much that they rushed to the dictionary to look up the word that describes the event. And it was surreal.
It was looked up so much by online users that Merriam-Webster dubbed it the 2016 word of the year. In simpler way it means “when we don’t believe or don’t want to believe what is real, we need a word for what seems ‘above’ or ‘beyond’ reality”.
