GLM selects words from Global English that Represent the years 2000 - 2009
December 14, 2009, London. Is it really possible to sum up a decade? With the help of thousands of readers, maybe it is. Last week, we asked for suggestions for the words, people, events, objects and cultural highlights which they thought defined the Noughties.
Our panel of five independent experts (Including GLM for Words) considered all the suggestions and have drawn up their list. Check out the snapshot of who and what has shaped the past 10 years.
