Trump” is children’s word of the year, according to a new analysis by Oxford University Press (OUP).

Not only do they like inventing characters – from aliens to superheroes – with the name of the 45th US president, but they also blend his name with new prefixes and suffixes, to create new words.
Use of the word “Trump” had increased by 839 per cent since last year. But children took the word out of its US political context in order to invent new characters, such as Boggle Trump, Snozzle Trump and Trumplestiltskin.
