Raise your hand if you love a dictionary! This was always one of my favorite things as a kid – I would scour through our dictionary not just for the words, but the one we had always had tons of great stuff like atlases, word origins, and so much more in the front and the back. So when I saw that October 16 was Dictionary Day in honor of Noah Webster’s birthday, born in 1758, I knew I had to share this infographic. The infographic this week explains how a word gets into the dictionary.
Do you love the dictionary as much as I do? I would love to read your dictionary story in the comments below!
