  • This is not spam, but a public service to Wordies who collect compendia of unusual words (that is all of us more or less). Grant Barrett is making his Official Dictionary of Unofficial English (2006) available for free as a downloadable .pdf file. Just check out his blog The Lexicographer's Rules.

  • For a (not terribly positive) review, see the official dictionary of unofficial english (grant barrett).

    As my comments there make clear, Grant Barrett is a justifiably well-respected lexicographer, but I thought this book was less than successful.

  • Well, it's nice that it's going to be available for free as a PDF, anyway. Thanks for all the info on this page!
