Sconnie nomination for City Dictionary WOTY

One of the minions has passed on word from the Linguistic Society of America / American Dialect Society meetings of this on-line vote. They met Ben Zimmer — yes, THE Ben Zimmer — in person, and he told them that the City Dictionary website is holding a contest for the Local Word of the Year for 2009, that is, local words voted for on a national basis Sconnie is in the running. Voting ends on Tuesday.

On Wisconsin!
