'Vuvuzela' the top word of 2010!

The sound of vuvuzelas are still buzzing in our ears. Many criticized  the sound as too much irritating while many others supported it. Anyways vuvuzela and its peculiar  sound have become so popular in all parts of the world. Now ‘vuvuzela’ has bagged another fame.
" Spillcam" and " vuvuzela" are the top words of 2010, reflecting the global impact of the months-long oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and the noisy South African horns at the World Cup soccer tournament. The Texas-based survey uses a math formula to track the frequency of words and phrases in the English-speaking world of more than 1.58 billion people. It declared that President Hu Jintao of China and Apple's new iPad were the two top names of the year on a list that also featured "Chilean Coal Miners", reflecting the worldwide fascination with televised rescue in October of 33 men trapped who were deep in a mine. 

"Anger and rage" among political voters from the United States to Greece was deemed the most popular phrase of 2010. "Obamania", one of the biggest phrases of the past two years, ranked in 10th place.
