Linguist, lexicographer, radio host, public speaker

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.
