the fine people at Merriam-Webster talk the talk when it comes to dictionaries. They have a little video site where various editors present the finer points of English lexicography in tasty bite-size morcels from hard-to-spell words to the i before e rule. The video here, however, looks at what triggers the act of consulting a dictionary. The dictionary notes how politics provokes enquiry into vocabulary.
