Tergiversate is word of year: Dictionary.com
TORONTO - Here's a word to throw around at your next cocktail party — tergiversate (TUR-ji-ver-seyt).
You may not have heard the word before now but according to Dictionary.com it's the word of the year.
The online dictionary says it chose the word because it wanted to pick a difficult word for a difficult year.
Tergiversate means "to change repeatedly one's attitude or opinions with respect to a cause or subject."
Dictionary.com says instead of picking a popular term or one coined by a celebrity or politician, it wanted to help expand people's knowledge.
It says the stock market, political leaders and even public opinion polls have tergiversated all year long.
