Top Ten Words in Place Posts of 2013


top10

Have you been following Words in Place faithfully? Here’s a chance to test your knowledge by seeing how many of the year’s top ten posts you’ve read. It’s somewhat arbitrary, I admit: posts which appeared earlier have had a longer period to accumulate more traffic, and this doesn’t account for those who read posts by scrolling down the homepage. But then again, end of year top ten posts are hardly scientific.

First, the honorable mentions:  some posts appear, are read, but don’t generate ongoing interest. Others continue to bring in readers, hence our honorable mentions. These include Warren Ober’s guest post (for reasons to do with Pearl Harbor) and 10 Jane Austen oddities in popular culture (for reasons which should be obvious). I wouldn’t be surprised if, in time, they surpass a few of the below in popularity.

For now, here you are:
