Words

When I think of the examination of words, I think of little legos.  Not the standard size mind you, the teeny weeny ones that you use to build pirate ships and castles.  My son and my wife always had the patience to dig through a colossal pile of reduce-sized bricks to build the statues.  When I read a dictionary (yes, you read that right), I probably get the same head rush.

One half of our OED

I’m currently reading ‘Word By Word’ by Kory Stamper.  It’s got some laughs in store for you if you like arguing about language (not punctuation; those people are weird).

  1. Dictionaries are a Big Thing in our house, and my wife writes them. She worked on the OED for a few years, and now works for them as a freelancer. She taught me to always read the preface first.
