How does social media impact our view of dictionaries and the development of the English language? Oxford University Press and Library Journal are sponsoring a webcast where a dictionary editor, a reviews editor from Library Journal, and a linguist, lexicographer, and language columnist come together to discuss and debate this topic on Wednesday 18 June 2013, 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET.
Panelists include Katherine Martin (Head of US Dictionaries, Oxford University Press), Henrietta Thornton-Verma (Reviews Editor, Library Journal), and Ben Zimmer (Executive Producer, Visual Thesaurus and Vocabulary.com). Josh Hadro, Executive Editor at Library Journal, will moderate.
If you can’t make it to the webcast, you can follow along on Twitter with @LJEvent, @OxfordWords, and the #ljtweeps hashtag. You can also access an archived version of the webcast if you register at the link above.
