Interactive Chart Shows Which Words Originated in Your Birth Year

Words by Year

The OxfordWords Blog has created an interactive chart that shows which words entered usage in the English language during a given year. You can explore words that originated in the 1990s like “blog,” “wiki,” and “dotcom,” or find out which word entered the lexicon during the year you were born at Oxford Dictionaries.
