Quiz! How well do you know 2020's most used words and phrases?

It has been a year dominated by one word: coronavirus.

And from that one word have come dozens of others that have entered our daily lexicon.

Very few of us uttered “self-isolate” or “social distancing” or “following the science” before 2020.

The majority of this year’s most used words have been about COVID-19, but there have been a few outliers that were not related to the pandemic that crawled into our brains and out of our mouths during the past 12 months.

There were so many the Oxford English Dictionary couldn’t bring itself to pick just one word of the year.

The question is, how well do you remember them? And, crucially, do you know what any of them mean?

Let’s find out by testing you on the biggest words of 2020 and their definitions.
