Merriam-Webster releases Top 10 Words of Year

Posted: Updated:

Dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster has come out with its Top 10 Words of the Year.

The annual list is based on the number of searches for each word on Merriam-Webster's website.    

This year, two words share the top spot: "socialism" and "capitalism." Editors speculate that's likely because of debates around the presidential election.

Others on the list were "malarkey," "democracy," and "schadenfreude."
