        "Omnishambles" has been named word of the year by the Oxford English Dictionary.

        The word means a situation which is shambolic from every possible angle.

        Other words included "Eurogeddon" - the threatened financial collapse in the eurozone - and "mummy porn" - a genre inspired by the 50 Shades books.

        "Green-on-blue" - military attacks by forces regarded as neutral, such as when members of the Afghan army or police attack foreign troops - was also on the shortlist.

        The London Olympics also generated a few contenders including the verb "to medal", "Games Maker" - the name given to thousands of Olympic volunteers - and distance runner Mo Farah's victory celebration "the Mobot".

        What's your word of the year?

        According To Oxford American Dictionaries the Word Of The Year 2012 is 'GIF'.

        I'm going to admit it, my word of the year was wrongly spelled word "cool" - "kool". It's been my favorite word for a few years now.

        My word of the year has to be "feisty".  My new sister in law uses this all the time and I just love to hear her say it with her Aussie accent.

        Hehe yes, I know, but I had a friend from Canada who spelled it as "kool". I found it more interesting than "kul" because in Serbian language, we use "kul".
