a word in your ear

It seems the OED is having a bit of a party this year. Finally a book I initially read about on the OUP blog, Reading the OED by Ammon Shea, is about to be released locally. I nearly picked this up when I spotted it in Canada in August but thought I’d wait til I returned home. Given how many books I bought on that trip, that proved to be wise restraint. Though the Gleebooks site is saying it’s not yet published, when I was in there earlier I did spy a whole pile of them, already priced and awaiting shelf space. Plus I’ve just noticed via the OUP blog that David Crystal, who has written many books on the english language, also blogs, though I’ve not had time to do more than glance at it as yet.
