After taking in the public suggestions, the word will be chosen by the Hindi Dictionaries team at Oxford University Press (OUP). The team would also be assisted by an advisory panel of language experts.
The panel of hindi language experts includes writer-publisher Namita Gokhle, Indian language expert Kritika Agrawal, journalist Saurabh Dwivedi, senior editorial manager at OUP India Malika Ghosh, and Ranchi University associate professor Poonam Nigam Sahay.
Talking about the implication of the Hindi word of the year, Kritika Agrawal, who is also happens to be the language champion for Oxford's Hindi Living Dictionary, said that the Oxford Hindi word of the year will help highlight the social and cultural relevance of Hindi language in the present context.
"It is the campaign's endeavour to alter perceptions about languages being a living intangible heritage and not merely a static tool of communication. I am delighted to be a part of, and to promote, a wonderful initiative as this," she says.
"To further supplement our research we're both calling on Hindi speakers across India to send us their word of the year suggestions and consulting with a panel of experts from a range of backgrounds," it said.
