Bryan Garner on legal neologisms and how ‘Black’s Law Dictionary’ keeps up (podcast with transcript)

Jul 7, 2014, 08:30 am CDT

Language is a living thing. New words and phrases—or even grammatical shifts—mean that a lexicographer’s work is never truly complete. This month, we’re speaking with Bryan A. Garner, the editor-in-chief of Black’s Law Dictionary, president of LawProse Inc. and author of the ABA Journal column Bryan Garner on Words. He’ll share with us what goes on behind the scenes to produce Black’s Law Dictionary, and give us some sneak peeks into what fresh material the newly released 10th edition has to offer.
