National Spelling Bee Week on the Kojo Nnamdi Show

via kojoshow.org

I’m a total nerd for spelling and language. Learning about where certain words come from and precisely what they mean is utterly fascinating to me. This was one of the best segments I’ve heard on the Kojo Show, with Peter Sokolowski, Lexicographer and editor-at-large for Merriam-Webster – how does someone become a lexicographer? Very interesting questions from the callers, too.
