allthingslinguistic:

Merriam-Webster adds “genderqueer”, “cisgender”, and “Mx” to its dictionary, pushes back against critics.

This is your periodic reminder that dictionaries are records of how people are already speaking a language and that every word was at some point being used before any dictionary added it

(Although apparently MW is also considering adding “ship” in the fandom sense, which would be pretty exciting.)

Fyeah Merriam-Webster!
