A little premature, don't you think?

There is still the month of December for words to creep in.

But the 2011 Word of the Year is…….

Tergiversate. Sounds made up.

Tergiversate (the "g" is pronounced like a "j") means "to change repeatedly one's attitude or opinions with respect to a cause, subject, etc.; equivocate."

Anohter word for flip-flopping?

The website's Head of Content, Jay Schwartz, says otherwise.

He states that while the word does have a flip-flopping vibe, tergiversate can also a lack of intention. To tergiversate, a person can do so necessarily.

He also states that the word was chosen due to the political strife and the world's economic problems.

Other words in the running were occupy, austerity, insidious, jobs, and zugzwang?

Zugzwang?

Congratulations to tergiversate for being the Word of the Year.
