In hour one of Here & Now's March 5, 2018 full broadcast, we recap the top Oscars storylines with Gene Demby of NPR's Code Switch, who says despite small steps forward on race, the evening didn't usher in any huge changes. Also, we hear from a Navy veteran and journalist who says inaccurate language when discussing guns has contributed to the national gun conversation's breakdown following last month's school shooting in Parkland, Florida. And we take a deep dive into how words are included and defined in the dictionary with Merriam-Webster lexicographer Kory Stamper.
