Bailout — “a rescue from financial distress” — was declared the winner of Merriam-Webster’s word of the year competition after it was judged to be the most looked-up word on the dictionary’s website.
Got to read this in Times of India website. If this contest would have been conducted in India , the most looked-up word would be “Layoff” or “Pink slip“. These two words have swept of many “IT ” profesionals sleep (including their family members). May be a qucik bailout in US will bring more smiles in India’s IT industry. Wish every thing will settle down soon..!
