Nonbinary pronoun ‘they’ named Merriam-Webster word of year
The pronoun "they," used by non-binary people who identify as neither male nor female, was named word of the year by American dictionary Merriam-Webster on Tuesday.

Two months ago, the dictionary added the word "they" as a non-binary pronoun that can refer to just one person. "There's no doubt that its use is established in the English language, which is why it was added to the Merriam-Webster.com dictionary this past September," the website said, adding that searches for "th...Keep on reading: Nonbinary pronoun ‘they’ named Merriam-Webster word of year
