Definition Discussion


Word nerds will appreciate Thursday’s dictionary-focused event at the aptly-named WORD bookstore. Merriam-Webster editor-at-large Peter Sokolowski will be presenting on the history of the dictionary in America from way-back-when to present day. Along the way, he’ll be answering burning questions on all things lexicographic, like what’s up with color vs. colour and how words like “locavore” and “vlog” make it into the hallowed pages.
