Word by Word by Kory Stamper

The quintessential book for lexophiles and logophiles! Lexicographer Kory Stamper takes readers on a delightful tour of Merriam-Webster’s hallowed cubicles and shows us how dictionaries are created and edited. Full of charming, hilarious, and never-pedantic anecdotes—including how in the world the word “irregardless” earned a spot in the dictionary—this is fantastic for any wordsmith. - Kelly
