So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy, funny, nor was it coined on Twitter, but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined 2010. The national debate can arguably be summarized by the question: In the past two years, has there been enough change?

Only time will tell if the latest wave of change Americans voted for in the midterm elections will result in a negative or positive outcome.
