  • 【2017年度選書】《Word by Word》│字典,比你想的更枯燥——或更有趣

    文/黑手2017年12月20日

    想像一種工作:鎮日獨坐桌前,反覆琢磨一字的用法,其詞性、字義、文法,如 but 究竟是連接詞或介系詞,good作副詞用又到底合不合理。而你的同事們各有專精,共通點是皆為安靜內向 nerdy 的文字狂,平時僅以紙條交流,辦公室裡的交談聲響將突兀得像降臨地球的外星生物。而這正是本書作者 Kory Stampe more
 

內容簡介

Do you have strong feelings about the word "irregardless"? Have you ever tried to define the word "is"? Brimming with intelligence and personality, this vastly entertaining account of how dictionaries are made is a must-read for word mavens.

Many of us take dictionaries for granted, and few may realize that the process of writing dictionaries is, in fact, as lively and dynamic as language itself. With sharp wit and irreverence, Kory Stamper cracks open the complex, obsessive world of lexicography, from the agonizing decisions about what to define and how to do it, to the knotty questions of usage in an ever-changing language. She explains why small words are the most difficult to define, how it can take nine months to define a single word, and how our biases about language and pronunciation can have tremendous social influence. And along the way, she reveals little-known surprises--for example, the fact that "OMG" was first used in a letter to Winston Churchill in 1917.

Word by Word brings to life the hallowed halls (and highly idiosyncratic cubicles) of Merriam-Webster, a startlingly rich world inhabited by quirky and erudite individuals who quietly shape the way we communicate. Certain to be a delight for all lovers of words, Stamper's debut will make you laugh as much as it makes you appreciate the wonderful complexities and eccentricities of the English language.
