dictionaryWhat word sums up the year 2009? How about “unfriend?”

That’s the New Oxford American Dictionary’s 2009 Word of the Year. It means to remove someone as a friend on a social networking site such as Facebook.

Each year Oxford University Press tracks how the English language is changing and chooses a word that best reflects the mood of the year.

Finalists for 2009 also included “netbook’,’ a small laptop.
