Thursday, November 21, 2019
Amid historic flooding in Venice, Italy, and catastrophic bushfires decimating Australia’s koala inhabitants, Oxford has named its 2019 Phrase of the Yr “local weather emergency.”


Oxford stated its chosen phrases or phrases “replicate the ethos, temper, or preoccupations of the passing 12 months,” and this 12 months, heightened consciousness of local weather science and its implications have generated large debate.


Earlier Phrases of the Yr embrace “poisonous,” “youthquake,” “post-truth,” and “vape,” and in 2015, “Face with Tears of Pleasure” emoji.


“Local weather emergency” is 2 phrases and a pretend phrase… However not less than they’re two actual phrases… “Youthquake” actually? Moreover, how might an precise local weather emergency “replicate the ethos, temper, or preoccupations of the passing 12 months”? Existential threats aren’t restricted time engagements.
