Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Year is honestly so apt for 2018


With all that’s going on in the Justice Department, a very divisive appointment of a new Supreme Court Justice, not to mention the ever-ongoing fight for social justice, it makes a lot of sense that “justice” is Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Year 2018.

The noun, meaning both “the maintenance or administration of what is just” and “judge,” was chosen as Word of the Year by the American dictionary, since it saw a 74% increase in look-ups this year, compared to 2017.

For a number of reasons and meanings, ‘justice’ was on the minds of many in 2018.
