Grant Barrett's The Lexicographer's Rules is my daily cup o' lingo java. I admire Grant, the editor of The Double-Tongued Word Wrester Dictionary and the new book The Official Dictionary of Unofficial English (and the project editor for Oxford's Historical Dictionary of American Slang), for his rigorous scholarship and his badass, take-no-prisoners attitude. So thanks, Grant, for letting us know about this interview with you on a new-to-me blog, #1 Hit Song. If you'ved always wanted to know more about diachronic dictionaries or the etymology of "squick," start here. And here's a heads-up to you word sleuths out there: Grant says he's "always on the lookout for new military slang."
