WIN­NING WORDS

First News - - Big News -

COLLINS Dic­tio­nary has an­nounced its word of the year (although it’s ac­tu­ally two words): ‘fake news’.

The term has been used so much over the last year, of­ten by Don­ald Trump. It will be added to the next print edi­tion of the dic­tio­nary.

Other words and phrases that made the short­list in­clude ‘Cor­byn­ma­nia’, a ref­er­ence to Jeremy Cor­byn’s pop­u­lar­ity, and ‘fid­get spin­ner’. They will be added to the on­line ver­sion of the dic­tio­nary.
