Author Grant Barrett is co-host of NPR’s A Way with Words, a favorite radio program of mine which I regularly listen to by downloading the MP3 podcast. You can access these podcasts from this blog if you look in second blog roll on the right. With his co-host Martha Barnette, they discuss slang, idioms and regionalisms of the English language.

Grant Barrett is also the author of The Official Dictionary of Unofficial English which he has made available for free to download as an e-book (pdf format)!! His e-book is available to download from his own blog site The Lexicographer’s Rules.
