Word of the Year 2017
Susie Dent is joined by a selection of celebrity guests to reveal which prominent term has been picked by Oxford Dictionaries to become the `Word of the Year' for 2017. The usual mix of inventive insults, fashionable portmanteaus and unusual descriptions have formed the shortlist this year, taking in everything from Kim Jong Un's unexpected use of the word `dotard' to describe Donald Trump, to an explosion in the use of the word `snowflake' to describe people with an inflated sense of their uniqueness. Joining Susie to pick through this year's crop of linguistic treasures are Jo Brand, Sara Pascoe, Nish Kumar, Aisling Bea, Rick Edwards and Jamie Laing
