Most visited words of 2018

January 4, 2019

Forvo, the world's largest pronunciation dictionary, has released its list of the most consulted words of 2018. For the first time in Forvo's history, a person has been the most visited entry. Can you guess what football player we are talking about? In fact, it is Kylian Mbappé, the star who won the World Cup with the French national team in summer.

We also have another personality related to football in this top 50: Ole Gunnar Solskjær. The dismissal of Mourinho allowed this football legend to become the manager of Manchester United.

In comparison to the previous year, there are some terms and expressions that remain in the list, such as, "water", "through" or "schedule", which have become classic words in this classification.

In a year which has seen Forvo's database grow to over 5 million word pronunciations in 384 different languages, it seems that correct pronunciation remains as important as ever.
