Merriam-Webster has selected the word justice as its Word of the Year for 2018. It beat out other notable words including epiphany, nationalism, feckless and respect. This year the word justice saw a 74% spike in online look-ups compared to 2018 and was one of the most-consulted words on Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary. The dictionary’s website cites national debates as well as racial, social, criminal and economic justice as worldwide topics of interest this year as the reason for the uptick in search volume. Stories involving the Department of Justice as well as searches on Judge Kavanaugh, a Nazi prison guard and Aretha Franklin guard also played a factor in an increased interest in the word.
