What’s Happened?

Oxford dictionaries have announced a pictograph as the word of the year for the first time ever, as it best reflects the tone of 2015. It’s no surprise as recent research from Instagram has shown that 40% of comments posted to the site now contain emoji’s, and furthermore that over time people who use emoji’s use the words they are replacing less. So what does ‘face with tears of joy’ represent – LOL and HAHAHA are the most commonly replaced words.
