SUSIE DENT: The Secret Lives of Words

03 Jul - 7:30 PM

Artrix, School Drive, Bromsgrove B60 1PQ

Lexicographer - Best Selling Author - Queen of Dictionary Corner



Take a journey into the curious, unexpected, and downright surreal origins of the words we use every day. She will look to the lexicon of the past to fill some of today’s linguistic gaps – such as the frenzied fit of tidying we all do just as guests are about to descend (that’s a scurryfunge).
