Eminem's 2000 hit "Stan" has changed the English language.

Meriam-Webster dictionary now defines "stan" as both a noun (an extremely or excessively enthusiastic and devoted fan) or a verb (to exhibit fandom to an extreme or excessive degree : to be an extremely devoted and enthusiastic fan of someone or something.)

Webster is the second dictionary to make such a move, following the Oxford English Dictionary in 2017.
