According to data of the dictionary, most often the word of year was used in such phrases as "toxic chemical", "a toxic maskulinnost", "toxic substance", "toxic gas", "the toxic atmosphere" and "the toxic relations".
"This year a phrase "toxic chemical" was of particular importance because of poisoning with neuroparalytic substance of the former Russian intelligence agent and his daughter in Britain which shook the whole world. The constant international attention to this business and also the growing concern because of a question of access to world reserves of toxic chemicals led to the fact that the word "chemical" became a word which is most often used about "toxic"", - it is said in the statement.
