The "ham butt problem": Erin McKean's words of wisdom about the dictionary

It probably won't surprise you to hear that a lecture by Erin McKean, editor in chief of the Oxford American Dictionary, is smart and informative. What may surprise you is that her "Redefining the Dictionary" talk is funnier than just about anything you'll watch this week.

Small world department: Erin McKean is the woman behind the
Semicolon Appreciation Society.
