LEX is pleased to announce a new LEXinar this fall featuring Douglas Harper of The Online Etymology Dictionary. Doug and I have enjoyed joint live seminars for the past two years (affectionately known as WordStock I and WordStock II), and now we’re taking our act online.
This Etymology LEXinar will be scheduled for five, 90-minute evening sessions this fall. Our plans look something like this:
Installment I: Etymology~a brief history
Installment 2: Cognates
Installment 3: Historical roots 1
Installment 4: Historical roots 2
Installment 5: A Holler Up The Well
Dates for the inaugural sessions will be finalized and posted shortly, and a registration link will be included on the LEXinar page and on the LEX Facebook page.
Join us and learn more about how to seek and use information in The Online Etymology Dictionary. Practice tracing the pathways of English words back in time, and learn how words are related within English and across languages. And a couple of times along the way, we might even make you laugh.
