Word by Word The Secret Life of Dictionaries By Stamper, Kory Book - 2017

Great book for anyone interested in how dictionaries are written. The author uses clear and casual language and the jokes keep things fun. There are tidbits about the history of the English language, interesting discussion about how people perceive (and judge) each other based on the words they use, and a peek into the author's own journey working for Merriam Webster. If you have even the smallest interest in language, you'll love this book.
