The famous Merriam-Webster dictionary has added a definition of “they” in order to reflect “the word’s increased usage as a pronoun that refers to those who conceive of themselves as neither male nor female” reported the National Review.

In an announcement from the official twitter account, Merriam-Webster wrote: “The nonbinary pronoun ‘they’ has been added to the dictionary” with an online link to the definitions. The newly added fourth definition reads: “- used to refer to a single person whose gender identity is nonbinary.” more here
