The word tsunami topped the 20 most clicked-on entries on Cambridge Dictionaries Online in December.

This is despite the fact that the killer wave hit Asia only on December 26.

Tsunami was by far the most searched-for word, and 'devastate', describing the effect of the earthquake and tsunami on many regions, comes at no. 20.

Each month, Cambridge Dictionaries Online calculates and comments on the top 20 most clicked-on entries on its online dictionary.

The result of the online poll is as follows:
