Oxford Dictionaries' word of the year for 2015 is...
not actually a word. It's the "face with tears of joy" emoji.
The response to this week's announcement has been mixed. Some love the "progressiveness." Others believe Oxford Dictionaries has taken liberties with the word "word" in choosing a symbol.
What do you think? Is OD progressive, or is its choice unbefitting of one of the world's most authoritative English dictionaries?
