Battle of the neologisms! Live, Saturday, June 16, in Chicago! Bang! Bang!

This year at the Dictionary Society of North America conference there’s an exciting new event: a chance to bring your spiffy self-made words to the world and to have them judged by a panel of experts (including me). It’s free, open to everybody (including press), and will be great fun. It’s also a chance to meet top lexicographers from many American and British dictionary publishers.

Erin McKean, organizer of this year’s conference, has the details: Saturday, June 16th, from 4:30 to 5:45 in Breasted Hall, at the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago in Hyde Park.
