I propose the word "Ebonics" as the word of the year. It has
probably prompted more discussion about language and dialect--

"Ebonics" was the winner in the "Most Controversial" category in 1996. I
notice that "stalkerazzi" was a runner-up for "Most Outrageous" that year.
Are previous years' category winners ever promoted to WOTY?
