YourDictionary.com, the Internet's premier global language portal and home of more than 1,800 dictionaries representing over 230 languages, has announced the publication of its Top Ten Word Lists of 2001. In addition to the Top Ten Words of 2001 are lists of Top Ten Names of 2001, Top Ten 9/11-Related Words, Top Ten California Youth-Speak, Top Phrases of 2001, Best New Product Names, and more.
Of special note is the Worst Corporate Names Changes list on which consultancy firm Accenture placed in second spot. (First place on the list went to Enron, with the explanation: "Sometimes a company doesn't have to change its name to completely redefine itself in the mind of the public.")
