The Wednesday Video Fix – Erin McKean: The Joy of Lexicography

Because languages are not only about the written word, TermCoord has the pleasure to inform you that from today it will share every week its love for linguistics, terminology and translation through the Wednesday Video Fix.

Mixing videos of the past and the present, TermCoord wishes to spread the word and the love of languages through insightful videos. Most importantly, it wants to give you a voice! Therefore, if you ever come across a video dealing with the fields of linguistics, terminology or translation, please let us know, by email or tweet @TermCoord and, who knows, the video of your choice could possibly be uploaded on our page.

Today’s Wednesday Video Fix is the TedTalk given by the renowned lexicographer Erin McKean on the Joy of Lexicography. With humour and insightful remarks, Erin looks at the many ways today’s print dictionary is poised for transformation.
