Webster’s name has become synonymous with “dictionary” in the United States, especially the modern Merriam-Webster dictionary that was first published in 1828 as An American Dictionary of the English Language. Merriam-Webster has announced “gaslighting” as the 2022 word of the year. Searches for the word increased 1,740% this year, the dictionary publisher says.
