Russian election influence, the ever-widening sexual harassment scandal, mass shootings and the opioid epidemic helped elevate the word "complicit" to 2017's word of the year, according to Dictionary.As lexicographer Jane Solomon told the Associated Press ahead of Monday's formal announcement of the site's pick, searches for the word increased nearly 300 percent over last year as "complicity" hit just about every hot button from politics to natural disasters.The first of three major spikes for the word struck March 12 .Solomon noted that neither she nor Dictionary.com can know what sends people to dictionaries or dictionary sites to look up "complicit" or any other word.The site chooses its word of the year, Solomon said, by heading straight for data first, scouring searches by day, month and year to date and how they correspond to noteworthy events.While the word has been around since 1790, a specific definition (tied to a noted 1994 episode of "Seinfeld") led to a word look-up revival in February.
