Dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster has named “justice” the word of the year for 2018, The Associated Press reports. The word had major prominence in the news cycle this year, from the bipartisan political support for criminal justice reform, to use of the word on the President’s Twitter account, to shake-ups in the U.S. Department of Justice. The Merriam-Webster website posted a 74 percent increase in searches of the word “justice” over 2017’s results.
