w00t!

Last week, Merriam-Webster voted 'w00t' as word of the year, and assigned it an official definition for their online dictionary.

w00t (interjection)
expressing joy (it could be after a triumph, or for no reason at all); similar in use to the word "yay"

An unusual choice, particularly because of its combination of letters and numbers, but it all the same goes to show how internet culture is influencing the ever-changing English language.
