It's Only Words

I'm going to be hosting the next Disability Blog Carnival. It's going to be on Tuesday 31st January 2012.

The theme this time round is Words.

I have seen a lot of people on twitter and in blog entries talking about picking a word to focus on this year. I saw it last New Year as well but didn't act on it . However this year I've decided that a focus word might be a good thing to have along with my goals for the year. And the word I've chosen is Courage.

For the carnival this time round I thought it would be interesting to know what other people's words are.

Have you come up with a word of the year?

What words do you really hate?

Or like?

Does disability shape your view of language or even individual words?

Those are a few ideas that I came up with for the carnival but I can wait to see what others think of!

Submissions can be left in comments here, tweeted to me @FunkyFairy22 or emailed to ejcrees@googlemail.com if you email please put carnival or similar in the subject so I know it's not spam

The carnival will be on Tues 31st Jan and ideally I would like entries by Sun 29th please.
