word of the year

If you're reading a blog about legal writing and the teaching thereof, you are likely at least a little bit of a wordie.  So you may be interested to learn that the American Dialect Society has announced that its word of the year for 2008:  bail out.  Over at the New Oxford American Dictionary, however, the word of the year is:  hypermiling.  Hint:  that first "i" is long.
