Empower - The Campaign for Northeastern University


The Ever-Expanding English Lexicon

In this session, we will examine a sampling of the words which have been recently added to the Oxford English Dictionary, one of the most comprehensive resources on the English language and its growing, changing vocabulary. We will see how the words of a language shed light on its structure and on the culture of its speakers, and explore the question "What makes a word dictionary-worthy?"

Co-sponsored by Global Student Success and the Department of Linguistics. This workshop series from Global Student Success is designed for international and non-native English speaking learners.
