"THE WORD TO WATCH." CBC News reports:
According to its website, the Global Language Monitor "analyses and catalogues the latest trends in word usage and word choices." It bills itself as "a worldwide assemblage of linguists, professional wordsmiths, and bibliophiles."

The group named "Aramaic" as its "word to watch." Aramaic is the nearly-dead language used in Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ.

Some of us have been watching it. It's good to see that others are catching up.
