Work with Marty Nemko, 7/16/17: Could being a lexicographer (dictionary maker) be controversial? Yup

On the July 16, 2017 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I talk with Ben Zimmer, a lexicographer. Although Samuel Johnson called lexicographers "harmless drudges," today's social foment is making lexicography a source of controversy.

In the program's second segment, I do Workovers on callers. Whatever your career conundrum, I can usually help.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 AM to noon on KALW 91.7 FM in San Francisco and worldwide on kalw.org.
