Oxford Dictionary has chosen “toxic” as the “Word of the Year” for 2018. In a video on Twitter, Oxford states:
“…this year more than ever, people have been using ‘toxic’ to describe a vast array of things, situations, concerns and events.”
The video explains how the word is used as a metaphor to describe situations and personalities. Unequivocally, “toxic” describes actions and behaviors of the narcissist.
