E-Sport now the officially correct spelling

There is a lot of arguing going on in e-sports. Mostly about things that are not particularly important. You might think that it belongs whether it’s called eSports, esports, or e-sports.

The Duden publishing house has now made its decision, because as of today the word is officially in the Duden. And with the following spelling: The e-sport. As an alternative to the masculine noun, the neuter “the e-sports” is also accepted.

The publisher is thus deviating from the international spelling, as the Associated Press has opted for “esports”.

So now I’m a lawyer specializing in e-sports, or “e-sports lawyer.”
