Grant: DSNA New Word Open Mic

Audio

Aired 4/19/09



In June, Grant attended the biennial meeting of the Dictionary Society of North America. One of the highlights was the New Word Open Mic where anybody was invited to step up to the microphone and submit a new word they had coined or found. Grant was one of the judges, and shares some of the new words submitted in this bonus podcast from A Way with Words.

Find out if "to Paris" has legs or if something you have is "googletudinous."
