What will the Word of the Year be?

The American Dialect Society will choose its Word of the Year today. Here is the list of nominees.

I like lists and I like words, so I look forward to the choice. Of course, this exercise is mainly a way for the American Dialect Society to get noticed once a year because journalists love to write about the word of the year. I am in favor of publicity for linguists and other word nerds.

Humblebrag, amazeballs and deather are my favorites on the list, but I think occupy has the edge.
