What’s the One Millionth Word?

A big moment for fans of the English language:

The English language is set to reach a very important landmark within the next year – its one millionth word.

A new English word is created every 98 minutes, and the current number of official words stands at 995,844.

With the way things are going, experts believe that the language will cross its one millionth word mark within the year, more specifically 29 April, 2009.

What will that one-millionth word be? My guess is that the word will be “Bushtility.” Here’s the definition:

Bushtility. n. “The fruitless quality of liberals who are still trying to impeach George W. Bush even though he left office months earlier.”
