The competition for the Youth Word of the Year 2021 has been adjudicated. The word that no one uses has won. This is because it is a plebiscite for boomers. He has less and less in common with young people.
The competition for the Youth Word of the Year 2021 has been adjudicated. First place was taken by the word sleeper, which simply means a place to sleep and comes from the word sleep, or sleep. It is a pity that virtually no one uses it, and certainly not young people.
There is nothing to hide, I do not count as youth anymore. Despite this, I hang out in the evenings, for example on Twitch, where there are quite a lot of people younger than me. It is not hard not to notice that this year’s winner of the Youth Word of the Year competition was not received with great enthusiasm. Many people say that the word is not used in practice, and that others that were nominated this year deserved recognition.
How did it happen that the sleeping catcher won?
The answer to this question is provided by PWN, the organizer of the competition. It turns out that only 9656 people voted for the word sleeper. Despite this, it was enough to win the first place. It just shows that the contest is not particularly popular. While many people know about him, there are so few who vote, and certainly very few of the voters are real youth.
This is confirmed by prof. Wileczek in an interview with Bankier.pl. She admitted that the most people over 18 voted for the winning word. It only shows that the sleeper plane is an invention of the little older youth. Another proof is the third position of the saying “your old”, which after all is not new and functioned several years ago. I used it myself as a teenager.
In total, only 34,855 people voted in the competition. Is it enough to really talk about the Youth Word of the Year? I have my doubts.
