Linguist, lexicographer, radio host, public speaker

Book Reviews

More reviews for my book have come in.

Dana at Linguistic Life had several nice things to say, and says “Grant’s reported to be one of the happiest lexicographers out there.” So! I shall never be called a young curmudgeon again.

Jan Freeman at the Boston Globe gives both the book and the web site a plug and says the book’s entries “are not mere barroom fancies.”

Steve at the blog Language Hat likes the book because he has “the quirk of insisting that the words actually exist” and those in the book do.

The review won’t be posted on the web site until next week, but Michael Quinion has sent a nice review on his 40,000-subscriber email list and posted it on his RSS feed.
