Newly Emerging Terms

  • Petro... as in Gustavo Petro, a leftist, who was just elected Colombia's next president
  • Beyoncé... who just released the first track of her upcoming album

  • Rusty Bowers... as in Arizona House speaker Rusty Bowers who testified at the January 6th committee hearings this week

  • electors (>125%)... related to the testimony at the January 6th committee hearings of Trump's push for "fake" electors 
  • leftist (>125%)... different contexts, but mainly driven by the adjective describing Colombia's newly elected president, Gustavo Petro, who is very leftist and promising sweeping change


Most Used Terms  

Note that these "Most Used" terms tend to be used very broadly, in lots of contexts... vs. the other "Emerging" and "Biggest Usage Increase" terms which are, as you can tell, quite narrow and likely more meaningful/interesting.
