Sarah Ogilvie's 'Words of the World'Download audio (MP3)
Oxford English Dictionary editor emeritus Sarah Ogilvie caused a literary stir for alleging in her new book that a former editor of the OED had deleted words with foreign origins. Ogilvie joins us to discuss the book "Words of the World: The Global History of the Oxford English Dictionary." We'll also explore the role and usefulness of dictionaries in an online age.
Host: Michael Krasny
