Sometimes, in my capacity as Associate Editor for Merriam-Webster, I give talks on various aspects of the English language (specializing in its history and its usage). Often, these talks have very silly PowerPoint slides! Here’s a handy list of all my upcoming talks, most of which will feature silly PowerPoint slides:

February 2014

  • Temple University’s TESOL Speaker Series; Philadelphia, PA
    Harmless Drudgery: The History and Making of English Dictionaries

March 2014

  1. I already know the answer to this, but do you take requests to just sit and talk to someone over coffee? I majored in linguistics in college and you’re basically doing my dream job. :) Love the blog.

    KS – you are my new intellectual icon! Never before have I been so in awe of one person’s use and knowledge of the english language – and simultaneously concerned with my own short-comings in said area. And, of course, as always – you are wicked funny!

  4. It’s a joy to read someone so literate and funny! Keep it up.
