The Oxford Press "word of the year" - Refudiate!

From Inside Higher Ed:

Oxford University Press on Monday named "refudiate" as the 2010 "word of the year." The Sarah Palin creation beat out such words as "gleek," "retweet," and "Tea Party." Language purists need not worry: winning this "honor" doesn't mean the word will be added to the New Oxford American Dictionary.
