National Dictionary Day

A power outage and then an internet outage…  Sigh!  What can I say?  Finally, the note to my readers is out.

Happy Dictionary Day!

October 16th is National Dictionary Day, commemorating the birth of the great lexicographer Noah Webster. Celebrate by delving into our archive for articles about Webster and the world of dictionaries. A sampling: “Noah Webster at 250: A Visionary or a Crackpot?,” “The Case for Dictionary Day,” “The Birth of Webster’s Dictionary,” and “Dictionary Day and the Quest for All-American Words.”

Let us hear from you.
