A fascinatingly idiosyncratic romp through the world of words by lexicographer and former Macquarie Dictionary publisher, Sue Butler.
Susan Butler was the Editor of the Macquarie Dictionary, Australia's national dictionary and, as Editor, was largely responsible for the selection and writing of new words. She is the author of the Dinkum Dictionary, The Aitch Factor, and New Words: Changes in Australian English (2020). She is also a regular commentator on Australian English on radio, television and the internet and was a TEDxSydney speaker in 2015. In June 2018, she was made an Officer of the Order of Australia. She is also, as of June 2018, an Honorary Lecturer at the ANU in the College of Asia and the Pacific. Sue now has her own website (www.suebutler.com.au) where she blogs on aspects of Australian English.
