"They" named word of the year by Merriam-Webster

Merriam-Webster has named "they" its word of the year.
 
The US dictionary also recently added a new definition of "they", reflecting its use as a singular personal pronoun for non-binary people.
 
Searches for "they" on Merriam-Webster's website were 313% higher this year than they were in 2018.
 
British pop star Sam Smith came out as non-binary in March, and in September confirmed on Instagram that their pronouns were "they/them".
 
A number of other high-profile non-binary figures were also in the news this year, including Janelle Monae.
