Overdetermined. The word of the year? The decade? The century? While "overdetermined" was used quite a bit in the last century, in this one, it seems to be taking over. In just the last day, I have come upon it in about four times in four web excursions. Very useful it is, too, when you're talking about something we all know and are already bored with. But is the word "overdetermined" also overdetermined? Yes, I think so.
