Oxford University Press Dubs Locavore "Word of the Year"

Posted By on Mon, Nov 12, 2007 at 11:55 AM

What the headline says, as announced on the Oxford UP's blog today.

"The word 'locavore' shows how food-lovers can enjoy what they eat while still appreciating the impact they have on the environment," said Ben Zimmer, editor for American dictionaries at Oxford University Press. "It's significant in that it brings together eating and ecology in a new way."

Among the runners-up: colony collapse disorder, cougars and tase/taze.
